September Issues: Bike Fashion Designers

The highly anticipated September issue is here. No, not that one. I'm talking about Momentum Magazine Issue #63: Spotlight on Bicycle Fashion Designers. momentum, momentum magazine, bike pretty, bikepretty, pretty bike, girls on bikes, cycle style, fashion bike, bike fashion, bike chic, bike style, girl on bike, cycle chic, bike fashion designer, fashion designer, interview, style spotlight, melissa davies

Inside you'll find my five interviews of current bike fashion designers. It was such an honor to speak with the brains behind these inspiring labels.

Here are a few of my favorite quotes:

"I feel guilty saying that I'm a designer. I know so many great designers and I really respect what they do. Really, I'm still learning. Every day."

– Omar Rada of Proof

"Being independent has given us the freedom to never compromise."

– Abe Burmeister and Tyler Clemens of Outlier

"[P]edal in a relaxing way. Feel yourself as a part of nature. Enjoy your surroundings."

– on Hideto Suzuki of PEdALED

"Women...[t]hey're busy! They need bags that keep up with their lifestyle and look like something they'd want to carry. Whether on or off a bike."

– Maria Boustead of Po Campo

"I'll talk to you while I curl my hair."

– Ann DeOtte Kaufman of Iva Jean

And I must thank the editors of Momentum Magazine for taking a chance on a heretofore only-self-published writer. The current issue is almost entirely devoted to bicycle fashion. Check it out for amazing profiles of labels like Vespertine, Michaux Club, Betabrand, and more.
