COMMUTERS heading from Ryde to Southsea were yesterday treated to a fashion show with a difference.

For the first time, Hovertravel’s hovercraft was turned into a catwalk to show off Isle of Wight eco-friendly clothing brand Rapanui ahead of London Fashion Week - modelled by the hovercraft’s staff.

Rob Drake-Knight, co-founder of Rapanui said: ‘We are really excited to be able to show our 2012 collection to the Hovertravel passengers, giving them a taste of the catwalk in their seats as they travel across the Solent.’
