For the fifth time annual “Fashion for paws” rocked the runway. National Building Museum seemed to be full, having about 1800 fashion and animal lovers under its roof. The_show of the year presented fund raising models and celebrities, dressed in outfits from Tyson’s Galleria’s Saks Fifth Avenue, Betsey Johnson, Nicole Miller, Karen Miller, 7 for All Mankind, Aram, Anne Fontaine, Stuart Weitzman. Syzygy Event Productions transformed the space into spring castle with cherry trees, blooming and glowing, soft white runway with real (at least very real-looking) fire hydrant, and gorgeously decorated VIP tables. Mistress of ceremonies Pamela Sorensen and host Lawrence Zarian, who specifically flew from LA for this event, made sure that spectators had a blast watching from the very beginning. Thanks to DJ Seyhan Duru the whole show was very dynamic and dance-provoking. About 70 fabulous women and men graced the runway with their four-legged friends, and got photographed and recorded by about the same quantity of photographers and videographers. Five over-the-top couture dresses by FIDM’s alumni Clay Sadler opened the show. Pieces were inspired by VitaminWater Zero – one of the sponsors of the event.

Pictures will say better than any words. Don’t forget to visit whole gallery with more than 300 images.
