New York Fashion Week Goes to the Dogs

Pet Couturier Anthony Rubio, no stranger to the runways had a plan in place to break stigma and barriers presenting his canine couture as escorted by human models wearing his women’s wear fashions at the fabulous location Gotham Hall by Style Fashion Week during this season’s New York Fashion Week. Never done before, the models, canine and human, took to the catwalk and blew the attendees away.

Anthony Rubio wanted to introduce his canine couture creations at NYFW, but not as a gimmick, he did not want it to be the typical runway show. Anthony did not want the dogs to appear as accessories. “In my world the humans are the accessories” said Rubio. Americans spend a record 56 billion dollars on pets last year. We see our furry four-legged cuties as family members. As the proud care taker of two Chihuahuas Bogie and Kimba, he would be the first to say that he does not own the dogs, they own him. With that in mind Mr. Rubio decided that it was time for the dogs to give fashion with the humans as the accessories.

Having traveled from Spring through Summer to various locations in Europe, Anthony picked up textiles and inspirations for this collection from Paris, Rome and the Amalfi Coast. Pastel colors dominate the collection as does Lace. The vision was affordable luxury with much panache. The human models would also get the same treatment.

Born and raised in New York City, Anthony Rubio will be celebrating 10 years this October since starting Anthony Rubio Designs and is the most accomplished designer in Pet Fashion.
