Pound Paws Pet Fashion Week - May 11

Pound Paws Pet Fashion Week at Ovolo Hotel 

In an exciting collaboration between Pound Paws charity and Ovolo Hotel Woolloomooloo (Sydney), Australia's most stylish rescue canines are set to strut their stuff on the runway, embodying the essence of canine couture at its finest. 

This exclusive event celebrates the partnership between high-end fashion and pet adoption, highlighting the unique bond between pets and their owners, throughout Australia’s busiest week of the year, Fashion Week.

Inspired by the words of fashion icon Coco Chanel, who famously stated that fashion is not limited to dresses but encompasses ideas and lifestyle, these rescue dogs epitomise the spirit of fashion and companionship. With each step they take, they exude style and grace, in hope to captivate their fur-ever owner.

Luxury dog brand, Mon Petit Amour Manolo, will be launching at this event, with a mission to revolutionize the pet fashion industry. 
Founded by renowned designer Crysta Lynn, who drew inspiration from her globe-trotting adventures with her beloved pooch Manolo, the brand offers luxurious dog accessories that reflect the impeccable taste of both pets and their owners. 

By promoting responsible pet ownership and advocating for pet adoption, Mon Petit Amour Manolo is more than just a fashion label; it's a commitment to cherish and adore our furry friends as integral members of our families.

The launch event, set to take place at the Ovolo Hotel, Woolloomooloo, on Saturday 11th May, during Fashion Week, provides a perfect platform to bring together dogs and fashion. 

Partnering with Pound Paws charity, the event aims to raise awareness about pet adoption and encourage the Australian community to open their hearts and homes to rescue animals. Rescue dogs will take centre stage on the runway, showcasing their unique personalities, whilst being carried or walked with professional ballerinas from Village Nation Dance Academy. The runway show will prove that fashion knows no bounds, even in the world of pets.

Complementing the fashion spectacle, attendees can engage in various pop-up activities, including a Pledge station where pet owners pledge lifelong commitment to their furry companions, receiving a special golden pendant and certificate as tokens of their dedication. 

Additionally, live illustrations by acclaimed artist Grace Choi (as seen at Fendi, Prada and YSL events), an animal communicator profiling your dogs purpose in life, delectable doggie canapés by Sassy Treats, and a pup-arazzi photo wall promise to enhance the experience.

Pound Paws is recognised for its Dog Day events around Australia, which aim to raise awareness about pet adoption. 

Hosting engaging events, whilst tapping into local communities and educating them about responsible pet ownership, this event is just one of the many community events in their calendar. Pound Paws Founder Brittany Bloomer shares: "In our efforts to reduce euthanasia rates and promote responsible pet ownership, we have noticed a notable increase in the public's interest in considering pet adoption when it comes to getting a pet.".

Ovolo Woolloomoloo sets the bar high as a dog-friendly hotel, surpassing expectations by offering exceptional care for pets of all sizes and ages. 

From the moment dog guests arrive, they're greeted with VI-Pooch goodie bags and accommodations designed with their comfort in mind. 

Ovolo Woolloomoloo guarantees a luxurious sanctuary for both humans and their cherished pets. It's an ideal backdrop to immerse oneself in the fashion event while crafting enduring memories with your loyal four-legged companion.
