Fashion week might be over in Paris, but that's no excuse to let things hang loose in the style stakes. As the Paris Motor Show continues, we take a look at some of the collaborations between the world of fashion and the world of automobile design. It's an emerging trend, with serious customer appeal, and even Victoria Beckham has gotten in on the act, acting as design consultant to Range Rover. Here are some creative efforts from designers including Diane von Furstenberg, Kenneth Cole, and Gucci.

Paul Smith Mini, 1997

A one-off creation with 84 stripes in 24 different colors. The Mini's quirky sense of fun was a perfect fit with Paul Smith's approach to fashion and the partnership spawned a range of limited edition bright blue Paul Smith branded Minis in 1998.
