San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 23, 2011
Bay Area's San Francisco Design Center, a interior design showroom that provides fine home furnishings, fabrics, and everything design and art related, together with the Luxury Marketing Council of San Francisco will be hosting the first Haute Dog | SF on Feb. 3, 2012 from from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. This doggie runway fashion show will feature more than 50 canine models and pooches, drawn from the ranks of the AKC and animal shelters, modeling outfits from the elegant to the outrageous.
"This event will benefit Canine Companions for Independence (CCI), which provides highly trained assistance dogs, free of charge, to children, adults and veterans with disabilities," Rhonda Hirata of San Francisco Design Center said. "CCI is the largest non-profit provider of assistance dogs and is recognized worldwide for the quality of their dogs and matching capabilities. We were drawn and moved by their motto, ‘the most advanced technology capable of transitioning the lives of people with disabilities has a cold nose and a warm heart!’ We were also touched by the unselfish generosity of their puppy-raisers who nurture a pup from eight weeks to 15 months and then turn them over to CCI for training and matching with their clients who have disabilities. Haute Dog | SF will launch CCI’s presence in San Francisco."
Bay Area interior designers have selected luscious and luxurious fabrics from the center’s showrooms to design and fabricate ensembles for the dogs. Wilkes Bashford and his dachshund, Duchie, will emcee the fashion show. Admission is $15 and the runway fee for walking a dog is $50. Enjoy cocktails, edibles and a silent auction.
"If you’re a dog lover, as we are, and believe in the power of a dog’s ability to transform the lives of disabled children, adults and veterans, please join us in a fun and festive event to welcome Canine Companions for Independence to San Francisco. As our friends at CCI would say, ‘Help is a four-legged word,’” Hirata said.
The San Francisco Design Center offers the best in interior design for San Francisco residents to find everything necessary to create, refine or reinvent style.
