Canines In Haute Couture For New York Fashion Week


Every season, Anthony Rubio partners up with animal shelters and animal organizations to include dogs that are up for adoption in his show. Canine Models included dogs from shelters, rescue groups, clients and social media influencers.

From Anthony Rubio

I am so proud of my New York Fashion Week presentation for Spring Summer 2023. My collection included 20 creations for humans and 20 of my Canine Couture designs.

The collection I sent down the runway was very eclectic. Normally I latch onto a theme presenting amore tightly cohesive collection but this time I wanted to capture a representation of life as we are experiencing it. So I call this collection Everyday People...and Their Pets. I was inspired over the past months by moods and everyday life. There was a little of everything speaking of how we forge forward acclimating to changes and challenges but never forgetting to celebrate our connections with our pets.

There were representations of day wear, lounge wear, streetwear and formal wear all including our four legged companions. All garments were created utilizing recycled materials proving once again that what was once considered waste can now be repurposed and worn as fashion.

For the pets I designed in bright vibrant colors with lots of glimmer, each a unique one of a kind work of art. These garments represent how much our pets brighten our days even at the worst of times. As I have stated time and again, our pets which are mostly adopted from shelters and rescues are models and not accessories. We celebrate our pets and they enjoy not only wearing these creations but they love doing these shows and getting the message out that people should adopt and not shop.

Proceeds from the sales of the canine couture go to various rescue organizations.
