11th Annual Doggies on the Catwalk

Southern panache took the catwalk with Buckhead-style for the sake of puppy love at the 11th annual Doggies on the Catwalk charity event. This year’s beneficiary, Alpharetta-based Canine Assistants, provided the doggie action while originator E. Vincent Martinez provided the catwalk, right down the twenty-fifth floor offices of the Greenberg Traurig law firm in the heart of Buckhead. This summer’s event generated $85,000 to train and place companion dogs with people of all ages who have special needs. Longtime supporter and emcee Monica Pearson introduced the 300 guests to the latest fashions provided by Saks Fifth Avenue and modeled by local influencers such as Simply Buckhead and Atlanta Pet Life Publisher Joanne Hayes, CBS’ Julie Smith and Tracye Hutchins, Suthingirl founder Ashley Stamoulis and style blogger and consultant Vickie Kirbo. Attendees also enjoyed signature cocktails and hors d’oeuvres provided by Le Bilboquet, The Consulate, and Bishoku, complimentary makeup touch-ups courtesy of Dior and a silent auction.
