Anthony Rubio NYFW FW19

Pet Couturier Anthony Rubio, is no stranger to the runways, having done runway shows for ten years with the last six during Fashion Week.

He had a plan in place to break the stigma and barriers presenting his canine couture as escorted by human models wearing his women’s wear fashions at the historic Angel Orensanz Center, originally a Synagogue built in 1850.

The pet product industry is estimated to bring in 65 billion dollars annually. You can help but notice that pets, primarily dogs appear in everything from ad campaigns to commercials to television shows and movies. Pets have transitioned from man’s best friend to being considered actual family members. People who delay having children or can not have children have chosen to fill the void with a pet. As with any family member there will always be health issues and the need for vaccinations which in turn requires pet health insurance. Other expenses come in the form of pet grooming, pet sitting and/or pet accommodations while owners work or travel. Pet travel is huge as well because many hotels world wide have opened the doors to these family members.

From Anthony Rubio

My name is Anthony Rubio a.k.a The Pet Couturier. I just finished presenting my much anticipated seventh season of fashions for humans and canines during New York Fashion Week. I labored tirelessly creating fashions and employed the assistance of only the most dedicated and loyal people to bring my visions to reality. Among those were my models, both human and canine who not only strutted in full glory but dedicated time to really get to know one another and harmonize with the dogs to bring about a seamless show.

Today, my show was a huge triumph thoroughly enjoyed by all. How do I know? I will tell you. The joy shines through all my models. What the audience witnessed was a professional fashion show like no other resulting in a deep appreciation of my vision.

My inspirations came from theater and film of an era where glitz and glamour defined your status in life. I referenced films like Chicago and Some Like It Hot. My models looked like centerfolds in society tabloids for old Hollywood Glam. While yes, there were floral pieces indicating the coming of Spring/ Summer 2019 there were also seductive dresses, some sheer in iridescent colors but mostly adorned with sequins and stones. The canines also wore bold colors, some had flashy formal ensembles a feast for the eyes and the audience truly loved it.

At the end, I came out to take my bow accompanied by Sunny, the Golden Labrador Retriever watched over the Summer grow on television’s Today Show from the Guide Dog Foundation. Sunny also wore a an Art Deco vest in gold sequins. The audience cheered and smiled as the applauded demonstrating how much they enjoyed my presentation. Those smiles said it all and I knew right then that our mission was accomplished.
