Tour de Fashion, ar free and fashionable borrow-a-bicycle program brought to you by the Fashion Center BID, closed with Fashion Week, but the online auction lived on…until today, that is.
At the auction’s close at noon today, all the fashion bikes received bids and will soon be off to their rightful owners. Thanks to everyone who supported Tour de Fashion by riding and bidding on these amazing bikes! While we are delighted the bikes will get lots of mileage with their fashionable riders (and owners!), we have to admit we will miss having the fleet in our neighborhood.
…And in our very own conference room (the temporary home of the Tour de Fashion fleet until today :)
You should be cruising on one of the Tour de Fashion designer rides instead. And now’s your chance. Click on the flier below to view the Tour de Fashion designer bicycle collection, available on auction NOW via charitybuzz.
Our very own Fashion Center BID board member Eric Gural takes the Public School bike out for a spin in classic business attire. We think this hip cycle really “suits” him!
New Yorker Elizabeth Marquez smiles for the Tour de Fashion camera as she tells us how she plans to buy her own bike once Tour de Fashion is over. We knew she looked familiar…she’s ridden the TDF bikes four times and counting. She had never ridden in NYC before this week and now she’s hooked, courtesy of Tour de Fashion!
NHK Broadcasting gets the scoop on Tour de Fashion as fashionable rider Anne Penrose describes her ride around the city on our stylish Juicy Couture bicycle.
Can you tell that our very own Fashion Center Leigh intended to ride the Rebecca Minkoff bike when she got dressed this morning?
This one’s a classic! Notice the laborious stitch-work on the matching helmet and crate. Happy Labor Day!
Wish we could have this Lela Rose bike, fully loaded with parasol, cup-holder, front basket and rear doggy basket (cute, little dog not included), RIGHT NOW for one last summer cruise around the Hamptons!
Because it’s a holiday weekend and we’re feeling generous and because we can’t contain our Tour de Fashion excitement any longer, we are giving you an exclusive look at Elie Tahari’s super-fashionable ride – in full – before it debuts on the streets of Manhattan. Enjoy!
You can take a joy ride on this luxurious cycle starting Thursday, September 8th.
Here’s a splash of color from the von Furstenbike. Stay tuned as we reveal the rest!
