Adoptable dogs strut New York Fashion Week

Tags: , ,

Vaute Couture is an all vegan and eco-friendly line of clothing and accessories for men and women. Recently this line held their runway show at New York Fashion Week and had some wonderful models: shelter dogs.

Not only were dogs featured in the show, there were also dogs brought by Humane Society of New York and Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue.

These dogs aren’t the first rescue pets to appear in Fashion Week! Our director of shelter outreach wrote about her sister’s cat’s experiences in multiple fashion week shows back in 2011.

In addition, the Huffington Post reported that a rescue cat named Lily appeared in this year’s Tracy Reese’s show. Amid fierce flats, First Lady appropriate dresses and wild animal prints, was the adorable Siamese cat, cradled by a model.

What a great way to show support of animal welfare!
