Brazil Hosts Pet Fashion Week (Cue Cat Calls)

You’ll either find this incredibly cute or downright creepy—Brazil just hosted its first Pet Fashion Week with a series of runway shows featuring prettied-up pooches. Showcasing pet accessories like collars, clothes, and hats, the event called upon both local and international designers to contribute. Although seeing dog models trot down a catwalk is plenty entertaining, PFW was more about business promotion. Apparently, Brazil has a huge pet economy, second only to the United States, so there’s a large market for fashion products for animals. Kitty couture, anyone? []
