New York Fashion Week: Custom Bikes by Designers Betsey Johnson, Nanette Lepore and More

1 of 11

Fashion Week is upon us here in New York City, and this year, stylish men and women wanting to make their way through the streets of the city in anything but a cab or underground are able to tap into something a lot more fun: decorated bikes by some of the world's top designers.

The Fashion Center Business Improvement District is bringing the glamor, excitement and fun of Fashion Week to the streets of the Garment District with Tour de Fashion -- a free, 'ready-to-ride' bicycle event including 30 bicycles, creatively customized by New York's top designers.

Bikes decorated by big-name designers Doo-Ri Chung, Diane Von Furstenberg, Betsey Johnson, Nanette Lepore, Isaac Mizrahi and some of our sustainable favorites like RESTORE Clothing and Gretchen Jones will be on hand for attendee use the duration of Fashion Week, September 8-15.

Had it not downpoured for the kickoff bike ride, you would've seen me proudly riding a bike from RESTORE but instead, we all huddled under tents in the Fashion District.

Check out who we saw. --by Amy DuFault
