See how elegant and stylish the pooches were!? I wish I could afford this handsome jacket!
Of course, the dogs were not alone there, and many well known celebrities were very keen to pose for pictures with the four legged models. We had Julien Macdonald there, model couple Sarah Ann Macklin and David Gandy , who is an ambassador for Battersea Dogs & cats Home, showed their support too. Olympic swimmer and self-confessed dog lover, Rebecca Adlington was there too, posing proudly with a little Jack Russell. Even fashion designer Henry Holland turned up for a cuddle!
The event was hosted by Amanda Holden and Tamara Ecclestone (a Chihuahua lover) had paid a considerable sum to be in attendance to raise money for the animal rescue centre.
All the creations were one-off and were shown on a 'dogwalk' during the gala dinner in the evening. One great example of the creations was a quilted coat made by Trevor Pickett, with two pockets- one for two hip flasks (water and whisky!) and two leather pouches (one for a foldable water bowl, one for....poo bags). Other collars and coats were designed by a host of designers such as Stella McCartney, Henry Holland and Mulberry.
All in all, if somebody likes to dress their pooch up in stylish clothing, that was the place to go! If, however, you have missed your chance, you might still be able to bid for something you like online
That's it then, hope you liked the post, well, you had to like the post, since it involves dogs, celebs AND fashion! It just can't get better than this!
Here is a last picture of David Gandy who, apparently, loves to pop into the Battersea Dog & Cats Home for his dose of cuddles!
