Forget Cabs, New York Fashion Week Will Have Designer Bikes You Can Borrow

0 comments

Here's another bike story for today for all you peddle heads. WWD reports that New York Fashion is getting a lot more carbon conscious thanks to The Fashion Center Business Improvement District's new bike initiative. The BID tapped designers like Diane von Furstenberg, Isaac Mizrahi, and Rebecca Taylor to put their sartorial spin on a clutch of Bowery Lane Bicycles that will be free to borrow in the Garment District during NYFW. But, for all you street thieves, don't think you can bring these babies to Tokio 7 anytime soon: To get your Garance Doré on, be prepared to swipe your plastic—you'll be charged a fee if the velocipede gets vandalized.
