Did you happen to catch the Tour de Fashion in NYC for the SS12 Fashion week earlier this month? The official pageantry might be over but now those same designer bikes are looking for (stylish) homes. To the highest bidder, of course. Thankfully the highest bidder on several of the bikes is currently $0.00 though the minimum bid is $250. The online charity auction will go on until: Thu, 29 September 2011 12:06:00 PM EDT, so there might be some ‘last minute’ action happening around then.

Bikes are mae by Bowery Lane Bikes right here in NYC and decorated by local designers including some big names like Diane Von Furstenburg, Betsey Johnson, Prabal Gurung and others. Personally if you’re looking for something to get me for christmas I like the abici (Italian of course) Granturismo DONNA in matte black  that the HUB (the bike shop that manged the actual event) sells. Regular size please. Or perhaps the Patricia Underwood bike, because I’m pretty sure that cute matching helmet has already been sweat in by someone famous.

 

In the meantime you can still admire the lovely Tour de Fashion website set up by the fashion center
or go to Charity Buzz to bid on the bikes.

 

If you get a little dizzy and wind up bidding a million dollars for one of these lovely bikes, keep in mind that all or most of the money goes to Council of Fashion Designers of America’s {FASHION INCUBATOR} Because who needs money more desperately than NYC fashion designers?
