At Harrod's "Pet-a-Porter," Puppies Rule The Runway

by SARAH MANDATO · November 30, 2009

Last week, iconic London department store Harrod's held its annual Pet-a-Porter fashion show, where pupps pawed down the runway in looks ranging from fun and festive to Roberto Cavalli and Vivienne Westwood.

Although somewhat ridiculous seeming, the doggy designs are undeniably adorable. Celebrated with a reception and charity raffle, this is the seventh year of the unique event. Stanley crossed the pond to check out these latest trends for himself, and even scored the look book (there actually was one, a brochure of the different outfits featured on the catwalk).

While everyone else is worrying about what Black Friday and today's internet shopping say about the economy, it's oddly reassuring to see that some pockets of big cities are still (apparently) rolling in excess. Or maybe's it's just those Brits being eccentric.
