From Anthony Rubio:
My tribute to CAMP Notes On Fashion;
It’s hard to believe that a year has flown by so quickly and we find ourselves in Met Gala Season. For the last few years, I took on the designated theme to create canine couture renditions of what is to be expected of the event.
Each year, I waited on baited breath for the announcement of that designated theme. When the announcement that this year the theme is “Camp: Notes on Fashion, I realized that unlike past years this theme could take one in many directions. Camp can be interpreted in various ways and I had to keep an open mind as far as inspirations were concerned. I decided to recreate iconic fashion camp as inspired by top Fashion Designers in the past few years.
While my Chihuahua, Bogie models a coat made up of Teddy Bears as inspired by a coat designed by Jean Charles De Castelbajac, Kimba models a Comforter and pillows couture creation inspired by Viktor and Rolf. There is a three dimensional floral coat inspired by Dolce & Gabbana and to bring us up to date a magnificent ruffled creation in the most vibrant colors inspired by the recent collection by Tomo, Koizumi.
