 	Fred Butler's ADAM Slam

Vauxhall asked three British designers to customise its new ADAM model in Europe, ahead of the launch in 2013.

Parked outside Freemason's Hall at the closing of London Fashion Week, James Small's 'ADAM Glam' design is wrapped in a pink and black graphic fusing tiger camo with paisley; Fred Butler's 'ADAM Slam' design embellishes the car with a coloured aluminium geometric sculpture and Louise Gray's 'ADAM Jam' covers the windscreen and rear window with curtains of ragging and heart shaped red balloons strapped to the roof.

In a film by Tom Giddings, the designers are shown on their creative trip, featuring mentors Louis Vuitton men's style director Kim Jones, A Shaded View on Fashion's Diane Pernet and stylist Richard Sloan.
