Bettie’s Wardrobe is about bringing back the style of the vintage woman for the modern woman. I started Bettie’s Wardrobe three years ago when I decided fashion was the career that I wanted. I like the eras between 1940s until the early 1980s. I like how the silhouettes can show off a woman’s curves, yet they can be worn in the workplace or out for a night on the town. As a designer, I like the modern fabrics and the techniques used in modern clothing; with my collections, I take some of the vintage silhouettes and put a slight modern twist to them.
