Hollywood's A-listers are making waves by choosing their furry companion's latest ensemble to compliment their own fashion design tastes.

Fashion Design for the Four Legged
What girl needs diamonds when her best friend is her accessorizing pooch? When a celebrity canine like Tinkerbell Hilton prowls the red carpet with her human companion, Paris, the poocherazzi takes notice! Today's adorned celebrity hounds have fueled the new surge in doggie fashion design.

Fashion's Famous Fidos
Dog fashion design is no longer limited to a boring old collar, although dog collars these days are a form of high fashion as well. Many people are opting to accessorize dogs leash and collar combos with sparkles, festive floral prints, and even feathers. Puppy tees and coordinating outfits make statements reflecting their human's sense of style while adding personality to the doggie divas.

If dogs resemble their masters, you can bet that Jack Carey's glitzy accessories will match Mariah's. Nicole Richie and her pooch Foxy Cleopatra are always complementing each other's chic fashion designs. Tori Spelling has hired a dog fashion expert to make sure little pug Mimi Larue is always in style.

Happy Tails in Fashion Design
Fashion design is not just for the sapiens! To keep up with the latest furry fashion craze, fashion design schools offer courses to students in design, textiles, and principles. Why not be a little creative and apply them to creature chic?

At fashion design school, you will learn how to merge your love of animals with your passion for fashion.
