Fashion Dogs is a fun, vibrant celebration of the animal we hold closest to our hearts. A dog craze has taken hold of America - spas, day camps, ranches, and retreats are popping up from New York to California. The image of man's best friend dutifully carrying slippers to his owner has been replaced by the pampered pooch, a well-groomed, superby dressed pet.
Tapping into this growing market, top designers are creating new clothing and accessory lines just for dogs. This book captures the growing doggy obsession in a unique combination of archive pictures and contemporary photographs: find out what kind of dog Winston Churchill loved; see the priceless portrait of Yves Saint Laurent's canine painted by Andy Warhol; see how Gwyneth Paltrow and her dog radiate elegance; discover which dog Chanel has chosen to showcase their watch; along with many more images. Fashion Dogs is the perfect gift for dog-loving fashionistas everywhere.
Francois Baudot, a leading fashion and style specialist, is the author of a number of titles such as Fashion: The 20th Century (Universe, 1999); The Allure Of Men (Assouline, 200); and the Allure Of Women (Assouline, 2001). He is a regular contributor to several magazines, including Elle and Elle Decor.
I would recommend this book because it tells about a lot of interesting things that we, as pet lovers, would like to know about how to go about pampering our pets.
