Yes, Virginia, there are glamorous parties (sorry, “pawties”) for dogs — and “puptials” and “barkmitzvahs.” What’s a fabulous New York City pooch supposed to wear to these events? Why, doggie couture, of course. Photographer Paul Nathan captured the canine couture scene in the Big Apple and rubbed elbows (and pampered paws) with fashion-minded New Yorkers and their fur children — all decked out in custom designs. Those pups, owners, and couturiers found their way into Nathan’s book, Couture Dogs of New York , which we first learned about on Co.Design. Catch a preview of Nathan’s work in our gallery.
