Bike Fashion Show: Cycling in a Wedding Gown, Business Attire and Evening Wear as the New Norm

- Walk and Roll Peel shows this season’s everyday fashions can work with cycling -

BRAMPTON, ON. (June 15, 2010) – See how everyday fashion like business attire and even a wedding gown can work with cycling. Spandex not required. Cycling’s popularity is growing as a transportation method, so see what riders may be wearing at Walk and Roll Peel’s fashion show on Saturday, June 19 at 1:30 p.m. in the Bay Court in Bramalea City Centre.

"We want to show people that no matter where they are going, they can arrive in style, even if they walk or bike," says Keri Baxter, Walk and Roll Peel spokesperson. "To prove it, our models will be walking, biking and inline-skating down the catwalk in the latest fashion pieces to show how specialized cycling attire is not necessary for everyday cycling. We will even show how cycling can work on your wedding day so you can showoff that beautiful dress and not keep it bottled up in a limo. The bike might be the next chic fashion accessory."
