DOGS will be making their first ever appearance on the catwalks in Spain next week when the leading Swedish designer Yvonne Börjesson presents her “Chien Chic” collection of fashion designs for our four-legged friends at the Pueblo Español in Palma courtesy of the Matthias Kühn Foundation.

Börjesson is a famous international conceptual designer who for years designed sports clothes from her former base in Paris.
However, in 2003 she moved into Home Couture and enjoyed huge success with her fashions for the home.
The collection, designed at her new home here in Majorca, included items of furniture to match one's clothes and now she has taken that concept one step further and designed a collection of clothes and accessories for dogs which match what their owners are wearing.

The “Chien Chic” enjoyed massive success when first unveiled on the catwalks of Paris and now it comes to Spain for the first time ever.
The catwalk of dogs (and their owners) will take place at the Pueblo Español next Thursday at 8pm when the Matthias Kühn Foundation presents the show set against a back drop of art, music and dancers.

The fashion show is going to be unique as the dogs owners will also be parading down the catwalk wearing matching designs.
Yvonne Börjesson has chosen the young Catalan artist Maria Eugenia Lopez-Rodo Pons to carry out the joint artistic work and an exhibition of conceptual furniture, art, clothes and doggy fashion and accessories will run at the Pueblo Español until August 13.

Dog fashion is nothing new.
Fancy dog collars dating back 400 years have been recently auctioned in London while millionaire model and actress Paris Hilton takes her designer-dressed pooch almost everywhere she goes, as do a number of Hollywood stars.

The doggy fashion market has become big business and is no longer restricted to the rain or winter coat. Short of ideas, then do not miss the fashion show next week.
