The International Association of Pet Fashion Professionals will hold their first pet fashion show as an association in conjunction with Backer’s Total Pet Expo Sept. 20, from 7-9 p.m.

It will take place at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill., and be a celebration of embracing the human-animal bond through creative design.

This exclusive event will feature ready-to-wear and student pieces walking the catwalk competing to win the coveted prize package, which includes booth space at the Backer’s Spring Total Pet Expo in Atlantic City, NJ in April 2014. A select number of couture designers will also be featured during the show with some of their most divine pieces of handy work.

Included in fashion show will be supermodel Kristy Hinze Clark, who was the youngest model to sign a contract with Ausstralian Vogue, and later became host of Project Runway Australia. She has also modeled for Victoria Secret.

She will be walking the runway to showcase her LEGITIMUTT brand, which designs and manufactures luxury products for dogs.
Attendees, exhibitors, and the public are invited to attend this night of fun, fabulous pet fashion. This industry event will have general admission and VIP seating.
