Although she previously told the Wall Street Journal that her spring 2013 retrospective wouldn't be her last season, the designer plans to skip the fall 2013 runways "to focus on her brand expansion" — including her "dress thing" and a perfume — according to a press release. "But she will be cartwheeling through Lincoln Center at an event for her new reality series, The Betsey and Lulu Show." Thank God.
