Fashion Charity for Pets – PSCPA

20 November 2011 One Comment

1st Annual Pet Support Phashion Charity Show benefiting the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (PSPCA) took place on Friday, November 18 and IT WAS FANTASTIC. At the front of the disco light runway were hosts Mike Jerrick  of Good Day Philadelphia and Kharisma McIwaine of CW11, they announced fashion designers for feline, canine and human models! I have never seen such intricate detail on such petite furry models until this fashion event. In addition to live music performed by Joanna Pacitti and Taragirl plus great food I met numerous industry execs from the pet industry. I must tell you that the market for pet accessory’s/apparel is booming and consumers only want the best quality/style for their 4 legged friends.

The event showcased designers Genny Perez of Milou Couture and award winning pet couturier, Anthony Rubio from Bandit Rubio Designs + Priscilla Costa.  In addition celebrities like Jimmy Rollins from the Phillies, and Nate Allen of Philadelphia Eagles joined various guests from various professional, business and geographical backgrounds to achieve a common goal – support the PSPCA and all of the great work that they do for animals and humanity. One charity in particular was Rescue Chocolate founded by Sarah Gross, who sells tasty vegan chocolate and all her proceeds goes to advocating for animals welfare. My personal favorite was her dark chocolate Mission Feral Fig flavor. Special thanks to House of talent PA  for the models and DJ Hollywood (@MrHollywoodDJ) for the pizazz.

    This was a very worth while event benefiting such a noble cause. I want to personally thank Philadelphia, the city of brotherly love and New York’s sister city for opening up its heart and it’s arms to embrace my team of models as well as my designs and those who drove all the way down for the event from New York City. It was truly my honor to have had this opportunity to not only debut my latest Couture line but to be part of a historical event which I sincerely hope will kick off more events of this kind to benefit our four legged friends. We hope that we will be invited back again in the future to bring yet more glitz and glamour to such a gem of a city.

    Warmest wishes to one and all,
    Anthony Rubio Pet Couturier Bandit Rubio Designs
