If you are looking to spoil your pooch, make sure you do it for a good cause as top designers including Stella McCartney, Henry Holland, Jenny Packham, Matthew Williamson and Vivienne Westwood have created exclusive dog coats to raise money for the Battersea Dogs & Cats Home.
The designer coats will be auctioned off at the Collar & Coats Ball, where the Home’s dogs will model the coats on a special dog catwalk, to help raise funds for Battersea.
Jenny Packham explains: “The coat is a development from a costume made for Dita Von Teese and is a Doggy ‘multi coloured dream coat’ made for a trip to Doggy Eden,” while Henry Holland said: “I am extremely proud to support the dogwalk, I have always been a dog lover and this initiative is such a brilliant way to use fashion as a way of highlighting such a great cause.”
Matthew Williamson added: “My muse was my American cocker spaniel, Coco….she is very chic!”
Clearly a must-have for every stylish doggy around!
Battersea’s Collars & Coats Gala Ball will be hosted by Paul O’Grady MBE and Amanda Holden on 8 November. Every ticket bought will help give thousands of dogs and cats a second chance in life.
