Designer mutts hit the Dogwalk

Halloween's over but our canine friends are still dressing up - only now they've swapped the festive garb for something a little more sophisticated.

A while back Lenny, Stylist's fashion week pug, bemoaned the "pet-ist" naming of the Catwalk and started a campaign to rename the runway. And it seems finally his call has been heard, with the launch of one of the world's only Dogwalks featuring models from Battersea Dogs Home.

Fashion's biggest names - including Stella McCartney, Mulberry, Burberry, Philip Treacy and Matthew Williamson - will unite next week at the Collars & Coats Gala Ball in London to showcase exclusive dog coats and accessories in aid of abandoned dogs.

They'll be Westies in Westwood, Dachshunds in Deacon and Staffies in Stella, as fashion-savvy fidos take to the Dogwalk to flaunt the latest in canine couture.

Grab a sneak preview of the doggy togs on display at the show below.
