Day six of New York Fashion Week goes to the dogs….the cutest most adorable pups who c-starred in Lela Rose’s fall 2019 runway show, that is.
The designer staged a dog-show-meet-fashion-show to showcase her fall collection, calling it the Roseminster Dog Show. There were judges, categories (i.e, “Lassies Who Lunch”) and even a “Paws for Intermission.” The models walked through the showroom clad in King Charles Wool plaid in caramel and hunter green shades, full-length dresses in jewel-toned floral prints, and relaxed pantsuits perfect for long walks in the dog park.
“I’m a bit more than your average dog lover. There’s a rare moment that you won’t me see with Bobbin, my Norwich terrier, in the back of my bike or seated next to me at a dinner party,” said Rose about her love of dogs. “The inspiration for this collection struck when I happened upon an antique dog cameo button, but my four legged friends have long been a lovable influence.”
There were Bassett Hounds, Pomeranians, Corgis, Poodles and Dalmatians, all of which looked very lovely next to the models. For the final lap, the models stepped down from their respective places on the podiums and showed off their furry friends one last time after receiving their scores from the judges before the end of the show.
