Pet Fashion Week was Awesome!

To say the least. I was incredibly impressed (albeit I wasn’t sure what to expect, attending my first Show) with the apparel and products that were shown last weekend in NYC’s Metropolitan Pavillion. I came in contact with some fabulous clothing designers… Oscar Newman, Romy and Jacob and Canine Styles – these were mytop 3 as far as clothing. When it came to collars and accessories, I really liked Bella Bean Couture because finally someone cares about the boy doggies>For toys and gifts: Simply Fido because their toys are organic and Arf Dog has awesome specialty gift-boxes that can accommodate any occasion. Whether it’s a fgift for a new puppy, sleepovers (complete with robes!), time for the beach or even a spa – Arf Dog has it covered!

I got some great advice on how to start my business, from actual business owners in the game – and that (plus incredible parking spaces) really made the whole trip to Midtown worthwhile!

As a marketer, I am always interested in the competitive set, so I did grab up Pet Age, Modern Dog and Fido. Some interesting articles, I am starting to sign-up for a few of their newsletters, so that I can stay on the pulse of what’s going on in the industry.

To say the least, I am still very excited about this new venture and intend to keep you all informed as I go along. The next big event is a VIP (Very Important Pet) fundraiser out here in Hackensack, NJ. I think I may actually take Kenny to this one…

Stay tuned!
