FURRY FRIENDS ON THE RUNWAY Set for NYC's Fall 2012 Fashion Week, 9/5
Fall Fashion Week is just around the corner in New York, and this season many furry friends will be joining in on all the fun just outside of Times Square at Ritz Plaza Park at 48th Street and 8th Avenue on Wednesday, September 5 from 6:30-8:30pm. Stonehenge realty pros, well-known for their pet-friendly residential buildings around NYC, have teamed up with high-end, pet apparel line ROYAL ANIMALS/ ROYAL POOCH as well as Unleashed by Petco to bring the puppies to the "dog"-walk before the fashionistas make their way to Lincoln Center.
"Furry Friends on the Runway" welcomes dogs from all over to dress-up in their favorite canine couture and participate in this one-of-a-kind event, geared towards pets and the owners that love them. At the event, Susan Traub, a Stonehenge resident and owner of ROYAL POOCH (which is a division of ROYAL ANIMALS) will be showing off her popular doggie apparel items during the fall fashion show. A guest fashion show will follow for pups wishing to walk the runway. $2,000 in Unleashed by Petco gift cards will be given away to some of the best dressed pets. After the event, photos of pets from the fashion show will be posted to an online showcase and more prizes will be given out to top dog contenders including a new wardrobe provided by ROYAL ANIMALS.
"We're so excited to be teaming up with ROYAL ANIMALS/ ROYAL POOCH and Unleashed by Petco for such a fun and important cause since New York not only loves their pets, but wants to show them off whenever possible," said Michael Stern, Creative Director at Stonehenge. "'Furry Friends on the Runway' is just the ticket New York needs to combine fashion, entertainment and man's best friend during one of the most exciting times of the year."
*Entry is free. RSVP at furryfriendsfashion.eventbrite.com. Any pet owner wishing to register their pooch for the fashion show can do so at the event. People of all ages and dogs of all breeds are welcome to attend.
