Get on the bus -- the London Fashion Bus, that is -- for unique pieces by young designers. Touring Britain to bring fashion to the people.
Update, March 2006 — Unfortunately, the London Fashion Bus is no longer in business. But we still think it’s a great idea! Get on the bus — the London Fashion Bus, that is — for unique pieces by young designers. Touring Britain to bring fashion to the people. Make way for the London Fashion Bus. Launched at the end of May 2003, this cool new business idea is the brainchild of Barry Laden, the man behind happening Laden Showroom on Brick Lane. The London Fashion Bus is a continually touring showroom, stocking over 1,400 pieces of selected work from the 40 designers who showcase at The Laden Showroom, from Candace Miller and D 4 Discus to Nicki Pumpkin and Nobby Styles. The refitted double-decker metro bus brings unique designer pieces to areas throughout Britain that don’t have London’s uber-trendy boutiques and outlets, while giving young designers a wider audience. The website lets consumers check on exact tour dates and locations. (Source: Springspotters, thisislondon.com.)
