London's double-deckers get fashionable

Some of London's most famous designers, including Julien Macdonald, Vivenne Westwood and Zandra Rhodes, are doing their bit to make London even more stylish, giving some of the city's world-famous buses a dramatic makeover.

Mayor Ken Livingstone launched four of the trendy double-deckers, whose exteriors were designed by the famous fashionistas, into service on Wednesday.

Colour seemed to be the key for the eye-catching vehicles – Vivienne took inspiration from her latest collection with a stunning patterned motif, while Zandra looked to pop art to create her bright yellow bus. Julien, who was a huge hit at London Fashion Week a few days ago, went for a neon "circus" print set against a white background.

The effort is all part of London's One Amazing Week campaign, a series of one-off artistic events taking place between February 22 and 27. Other highlights of the promotion include the Tate Museum paint-by-numbers exhibition, which featured a visit from Claudia Schiffer, and a world-record attempt in the West End by modelling legend Jerry Hall.
