Fashion for Paws 2011: Backstage Pass

The 5th annual Fashion for Paws was a runway event like no other… Models were dressed in haute couture and escorted by canines who were decked out in the most chic of designer threads for pets! Yes, that’s right, man’s best friend trotted down the catwalk alongside DC’s most fashionable.

The sold out event, held at the National Building Museum, raised $520,000 for the Washington Humane Society, according to Fashion for Paws executive director Tara de Nicolas.

Check out photo highlights from our exclusive backstage access at the event (see more photos on Facebook).
