Photographer Paul Nathan has documented New York's
best-dressed dogs, their owners, and the couturiers who
design their made-to-order outfits. While socializing with
the four-legged, Nathan attended 'pawties', 'puptials,' and
'barkmitzvahs'. He photographed married dogs who get around
in yellow cabs wearing matching outfits and visited the
homes of doggie moms and dads with walk-in closets for their
'fur children' filled with enough designer outfits to rival
any New York fashionista. And finally he chose fifteen of
the most fashionable dogs to invite to his studio along with
their favorite couture outfits to pose for this book. The
result is a giddily glamorous romp through New York's
'Doggie World' where the city's most fashionable mutts get
dressed to the nines even for a walk around the block.
