The Fashion Center Business created the Tour de Fashion so that New York’s fashionistas could travel around the city in eco-chic bikes. With the collaboration of top designers such as Diane von Furstenberg, Patricia Under, Isaac Mizrahi, Betsey Johnson, Lela Rose and Rebecca Minkoff, the Tour de Fashion built 30 bicycles to showcase and celebrate the fashion talent of the city.
Bold colors, feathers, parasols, roses, stylish wooded baskets, matching helmets, and pink and gold handles are some of the swanky accessories that accompany these pieces.
If you live in New York or happen to be visiting, you can rent this bikes for free for 60 minutes. The stations are located in the Fashion District and Meatpacking District. However, if you are willing to spend some extra bucks on these one-of-a-kind fashionable pieces, you can actually take one home, as they are being auctioned now to raise funds for the Council of Fashion Designers of America.
Tour de Fashion gives the opportunity to ride New York in style; just make sure the bike matches your outfit!
