Because dogs like luxury too!!
British designers are coming together to create canine couture for this year's Collars & Coats Gala supporting the Battersea Dogs & Cats Home!
Animal loving fashioners including Mulberry's Emma Hill, Stella McCartney, Philip Treacy, Henry Holland, Jenny Packham, Vivienne Westwood, Giles Deacon, Julien Macdonald, Gareth Pugh and Matthew Williamson have all signed on to design dogwear for the November 8th pooch party.
Chief executive of the charity, Claire Horton expressed how excited she is to be working with the biggest names in fashion:
"We can't wait to see Battersea dogs groomed and dressed in canine couture by the most influential and iconic designers from the world. It's incredible to be working with such world-class talent and we're immensely grateful to everyone who is supporting our dogs and our cats through this collaboration."
The bitchin' designs will be modeled on a dogwalk by four-legged models from the Battersea shelter, before the pieces are auctioned off.
We can only imagine what these creative minds will come up with!
