About The Show

About the New Yorkie Runway Doggie Fashion Show

Miss USA & Moshie on NYRIt all started in the shower. I’m thinking . . . how could we raise money for Angel On A Leash, a foundation that helps train therapy dogs to go into hospitals to bring smiles to those in need, introduce the iconic pet-friendly New Yorker Hotel to new pet loving travelers, and create a fun way to showcase our New Yorkie line of doggie fashions? That’s how the New Yorkie Runway™ Doggie Fashion Show was born. In the shower.

David Frei at The New Yorkie Runway ShowAfter two pawsome shows, the 3rd annual New Yorkie Runway show will once again be held at the New Yorker Hotel during the excitement of NY Fashion Week and the legendary Westminster Dog Show. David Frei, the 23 year voice of Westminster and I will once again emcee this furry fido fashion event to another sold out crowd of people and their pets. And we are thrilled that Miss USA, Alyssa Campanella, who walked the runway last year, will be the host of this year's show!

Eden WoodsMiss USA, Oscar winner Celeste Holm, Toddlers & Tiara's Eden Wood,Cat Greenleaf from NBC's Talk Stoop, WNBC anchor Pat Battle, reality stars from Most Eligible Dallas, Top Chef, Million Dollar Listing, Millionaire MatchMaker and CBS radio personalities are just a few of the celebs who have strutted their stuff with their pups in New Yorkie® couture.

Mattingly and ownerOh yes, one more really cool thing. For all the pet parents and their pets who begged to be in the big NYR Doggie Fashion Show, we held the first New Yorkie Runway Casting Call here in NYC where pets and their humans could audition for a spot on the runway and cool prizes. Folks from as far away as VA, DC and PA came to play. 10 finalists were chosen and their pawsome casting call videos were posted. Folks from all over the country voted for their favorite pups! All the fab finalists appeared at the start of the NYR Fashion Show where we announced the winning team.

Jinjin and finalist on the New Yorkie RunwayWinners Afghan hound Jin Jin and pet parents Annette Smith were announced as the winners of the 2012 New Yorkie Casting Call and were presented the coveted NYR trophy by David Frei.
