FINALLY, FIDO HAS SOMETHING DECENT TO WEAR TO THE OSCARS

Hue thinks the one thing missing from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is outfits for dogs. Fortunately, FIT filled the gap on April 18 with its Fourth Annual Pet Fashion Show, when dogs took the runway in outfits so fashionable they need a warning label. The designs came out of FIT’s Pet Product Design and Marketing certificate program.

Form and function don’t exactly intersect with these stunners–but form and cuteness make a sturdy bond.

Hue is quite taken with dog fashions but wants to know where the cat and hamster fashions are.
