Four-Legged Fashion Show Descends Upon Buckhead Atlanta this June

June 02, 2015

Atlanta, Georgia (June 2, 2015) – Doggies on the Catwalk and its philanthropic founder, E. Vincent Martinez of fashionado, are once again set to present an unforgettable evening of fashion, cocktails, bites, and four-legged friends – all for a great cause. On Saturday, June 13, 2015 beginning at 7 p.m., the eighth annual event will descend upon the stylish streets of Buckhead Atlanta where some of Atlanta’s most notable personalities will don the latest trends with loving pups in tow.  Benefiting the Atlanta Pet Rescue & Adoption, a no-kill shelter dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating dogs and cats so they can be adopted into safe and loving forever homes, tickets are available now for purchase beginning at $50 at www.fashionado.net/doggiesonthecatwalk.

Emceed by Monica Pearson, Martinez has once again paired celebrity humans, all wearing designer fashions from Buckhead Atlanta’s Alice + Olivia, Helmut Lang, Theory, Bonobos, and Bella Bag, with canine companions, all who are up for adoption. Guests are also invited to enjoy a preview tasting of light bites from Dolce Italian from 7 to 8 p.m., an impressive silent auction and the official after-party at Corso Coffee hosted by Toni Moceri featuring Bulleit Bourbon cocktail specials.   

Fashion and animal lovers can also take advantage of a new VIP front-row seating option this year thanks to Le Bilboquet. The popular upscale, cafe and white-tablecloth restaurant featuring traditional French cuisine will offer 100 front row patio seats from 7 to 9 p.m. for $150 per person. With a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Atlanta Pet Rescue & Adoption, guests will be treated to complimentary French 75 cocktails and passed hors d'oeuvres and have the option to order dinner and cocktails from the main menu. Reservations and payment for Le Bilboquet’s front row seating option can be reserved by calling the restaurant directly at 404-869-9944. For more on Le Bilboquet, visit lebilboquetatlanta.com.
