on Friday,October 30,2009 19:10
A group of renowned fashion and jewelry designers are coming together to dress their dogs as part of the Fourth Annual DogCatemy Celebrity Gala.
Highlighted by an auction called Dollars for Designer Collars, the event tasked a host of well known couturiers including Isaac Mizrahi, Christie Brinkley, Rebecca Taylor and Byron Lars to craft unique collars for their four-legged friends with the proceeds going to the Animal League, the world''s largest no-kill animal shelter and adoption organization.
The designs vary between fantasy-inspired bands bedazzled in jewels and more in depth reflections of the designer''s personal life and inspirations.
Several designers expressed a keen enthusiasm to work with their canine companions.
"I love designing for dogs," exclaims Marc Bouwer, a designer participating in the auction. "You can create anything you want and they will wear it wide-eyed and lovingly without criticism and complaints!"
The event will also auction off experience offers including a tour of Sirius Radio studios, sports memorabilia, jewelry, art and luxury pet items.
