Fur is back in: on April 13, 2013, pups and people alike will trot the dogwalk during the annual Fashion for Paws runway show at the National Building Museum. More than 90 models have just nine weeks to raise at least $5000 to secure a spot on the coveted runway, alongside the District’s most haute-couture hounds. E! News Now anchor and E! News correspondent Ashlan Gorse returns to host this highly-anticipated annual event, the proceeds of which benefit the Washington Humane Society.
More than 1,700 guests will attend the event. Sponsors Syzygy Event International, Design Cuisine, Atmosphere and Edge Floral Event Designers will donate more than $420,000 in technical, design and culinary amenities that will transform the National Building Museum into a couture wonderland. Tysons Galleria luxury retailers and Toka Salon & Day Spa will style the F4P models. Wagtime will provide innovative, complementary doggie couture.
60 VIP seated six-person tables ($3000-$6000) as well as a select number of ten-person VVIP tables ($10,000) next to the runway will enjoy a three-course meal from sponsor Design Cuisine. This year, individual seat tickets will replace VIP seat tickets. VIP cocktail table guests ($250 per ticket) will enjoy canapés, access the VIP table area and private premium bars and champagne. 450 VIP runway show-style seats, behind the tables, will accommodate 900 general attendees.
Event co-chairs Denise Durgin, Dr. Katy Nelson, Tommy McFly, Susan Ostrowski, and Charlotte Pineda, join Master of Ceremonies Pamela Sorensen for the event.
