My tribute to Heavenly Bodies;


Show Full Text

Each year as soon as the announcements are made pertaining to the selected theme of the much anticipated ” Met Gala” to take place at New York’s iconic Metropolitan Museum Of Art, I begin researching and sketching from inspirations I gather to decide on which and how to execute my own renditions for dogs. Last year my designs were featured in world-renowned high fashion publications so, of course I went right to work on this year’s theme, Heavenly Bodies Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.

The subject matter offered a plethora of inspirations as done by some of the greatest fashion designers of our times. I spared no expense on materials I chose, including crystal encrusted chain mail. I toiled and strategized for each design to produce my masterpieces. I worked to recreate some features and reinvented others which were executed meticulously.

The end products are the following as modeled by my Chihuahua boys Bogie (tri-colored) and Kimba (blonde). I am proud to unveil these and hope that you will appreciate my works and all the work and imagination that went into these.

These images are a preview of what’s to come in my forthcoming 9×12, 250 page Coffee Table Book Canine Couture. I have chosen to go the Kickstarter route. It will feature dogs from various shelters throughout the country. You can find out more info here:
