Speaking about her influences, Bethany told T Magazine that, “Oh, sweet mother, that is a question with a very long answer. My muse is the modern woman of now. She’s very busy, inspired and interesting, and I see her all the time on the streets of cities around the world. I design for her; I adore her. Also, women from the past who had style, passion and a powerful perspective on life. Martha Graham, Diana Vreeland, Jackie, Brigitte and Audrey, especially in later years. Many of the women you know by a single name.”
The designer, who lives with her husband Ryan and Pedro, their Pomerania, revealed in an interview with fashionwelike.com that her style is both conservative and bold. “Both, absolutely, and usually at once. For instance, I may wear a conservative stovepipe jean but I’ve got one hell of a stiletto on the foot. And they’re ours so when I say that, I am either talking about the V-heel or the Toe Patch Slingback,” she said.
As on the biggest mistake one can make when getting dressed, she said that, “Leaving out the posture. I would say good posture, but you know sometimes you see that dude in London with his little half-lean smoking a cig and you say, well that’s a posture. He’s fulfilling the coats full potential with that silhouette, and you know it completes the look. But then, I guess you could also call that attitude, although I don’t like that word so let’s go back to posture.”
