New York Fashion Week just became about 100 percent more adorbz. The world-renowned fashion fest will include some high-end petwear by Couture by Sophie on the runway.
Founded by doggie designer Jody Miller, a long time publicist in the music industry, Couture by Sophie is named for her certified Therapy Dog Portuguese Podengo Pequeño dog, who is her “partner, muse and model,” according to a press release.
Ms. Miller’s experience as a music publicist has influenced her design aesthetic. Attendees of the fashion show will get a sneak peek at the label’s “Icons” collection, which is Ms. Miller’s “whimsical way of paying homage to my many years working in the music industry with some of the most influential artists to date.”
The collection taps the hottest trends from the (human) runway: fine fur, leather, denim, exotics and metallics. All the fabrics are cruelty-free, of course, so the furs and leathers are all very fine faux. Icons honored with the fashion looks include Cyndi Lauper, Cher, Whitney Houston, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears and Elvis Presley.
“The Britney,” for example, utilizes denim, apple green Ultrasuede, and faux python, recalling a certain outfit worn at the 2001 MTV Music Video Awards. “The Cher” features baby zebra exotics and studs, and “The Cyndi” utilizes metallic fabric and neon fur.
During New York Fashion Week, Couture by Sophie will participate in a shoe/accessories runway show at Chelsea’s Glass Houses as part of the launch of Shoe Week, where its fall ensembles of coats, carry bags, collars and leashes will be featured on Sophie and on her best friend, Holly.
Couture by Sophie’s fall looks will be available in boutique stores in New York City, Miami, and South Beach in September. A percentage of all sales goes to the company’s charity partner, the American Humane Association.
