Recently I have been making long gowns that diva dogs wear to fashion shows, weddings and other red carpet events. Mostly they are one-of-a-kind artistic creations.

I style each gown as I would a human gown for a red carpet event. For The Spanish Rose I took on the challenge of a one shoulder asymmetric design — a true challenge since dogs are vertical and without ‘shoulders’.  I wanted to use red sequin fabric, and I had these wonderful appliques I’d found downtown.

The Spanish Rose:

The Blue Darling

I passed this fabric on the street downtown and had to buy it.  I’m hoping when I go back tomorrow it will still be there, but the downtown in the fabric district, things sell fast.  I love the wonderfully embroidered blue roses on the delicate nude mesh.  I cut out the roses and used them as appliques for the delicate neck detail and cuffs.

The Snow Princess:

Once again this fabric found me. It was so soft and sparkling.  I had no idea what I would do with it, but I bought it.  It was cozy like a blanket. I decided to soften it up with soft tulle, feather fur and soft satin.

Pretty in Pink:

This was my first gown. Another bolt on the sidewalk on 9th street. Then I found all the fabric at one of my favorite trim stores. I loved the translucent sparkle of the sequins and I wanted to make something girly and sweet.

Pink Fantasia:

I loved the texture of this fabric, so texture, and architecture, became the theme of the dress.

Flapper Girl:

The fabric screamed 1920’s so I went with it. The downtown garment district has EVERYTHING! I was able to find mesh to match the novelty skirt fabric, and not even at the same store.
