Inspired by the name of the annual bicycle race in France and nearby countries, here comes Tour de Fashion Bicycles which are series of uber stylish bikes. These bikes are going to be New York’s hot ride for Fashion Week 2011.The concept was thought over by Fashion Centre Business so that the fashion conscious folks could travel around the city on colorful bikes thus letting them be eco-conscious and maintain their fashion quotient at the same time. These rentable bikes have been made in collaboration with top designers such as Diane von Furstenberg, Patricia Under, Isaac Mizrahi, Betsey Johnson, Lela Rose and Rebecca Minkoff. The team built together as much as 30 bikes to showcase and celebrate the spirit of fashion talent in the city.
The bikes show a good concoction of bold colors, feathers, parasols, roses, roses, stylish wooded baskets, matching helmets, and pink and gold handles among other eye-catching accessories. The folks in New York can rent these bikes for free for 60 minutes. The pick-up stations are located in the Fashion District and Meatpacking District. There is also an option to buy one of these as they will be auctioned to raise funds for the Council of Fashion Designers of America.
