Join Canine Companions for Independence® at the beautiful Peninsula Chicago for Haute Dog Chicago, a doggie runway fashion show, on September 8 from 6p-9p.

This elegant tail wagging affair will begin in true fashion week style with a walk down the red carpet. Then, step inside The Peninsula’s Grand Ballroom and enjoy a cocktail hour, hors d’oeuvres and silent auction. At 7:00, sit back and watch couture canines give new meaning to the catwalk as they model the latest fall fashions provided by Chicago’s Tails in the City. “Haute Dog Chicago coincides with NY Fashion Week. The timing is perfect to show off the latest doggie Fall fashions,” stated Tails in the City owners Bruce and Phillip. The evening will wrap up with a dog-gone good dessert.

Joining the couture canines are some of Chicago’s finest: Candace Jordan, The Joffrey Ballet dancers Dylan Gutierrez and Jeraldine Mendoza, Janet Lee Mandell, Sherill Bodine, Lakesha Rose, Kate Platis, Angie Demars, Katy Sandberg, Michelle Delaney, Jan Flanagan, Kim Gleeson and Elizabeth Steele Applebaum. The couture canines’ counterparts will be clothed by Christopher and Contessa.
