Designer Anthony Rubio poses for a photo-op with Rachel Pizzolato and a model during the Anthony Rubio fashion show at NYFW Fall 2024 powered by Art Hearts Fashion at the Angel Orensanz Foundation on Sunday.

NYFW Fashionistas enjoyed a fabulous collection of eveningwear and pet couture presented by Designer Anthony Rubio at 
Art Heart Fashion at the Angel Orensanz Foundation on the lower East Side.

Canine models wagged their tails down the runway for Anthony Rubio’s Fall/Winter 2024 Canine Couture women’s wear collection in a show where “humans are the accessories,” expressed Designer Anthony Rubio.


Canines from all walks of life, including shelters and rescue groups from places such as Quebec, Los Angeles and San Antonio. The brand was also represented by social media dog influencers, like Bastian the Talking Terrier.

During our interview after the show Designer Anthony Rubio expressed The inspiration is “Everything is coming up roses.”

“We are living in dark times with wars breaking out, political feuds happening left and right, crime up, climate change causing devastation and we need an infusion of positivity,“Our four-legged family members bring love and joy, so I decided to have them bring about the message that it is time to stop and smell the roses.”

Rubio's designs included lace dresses featuring rose embroidery including rose chiffon rose petals and sequins to “bring on the glitter and glam," the hues of red, black and gold to allow the Canine fashion to pop," he explained.

Another fabulous treat was Designer Anthony Rubio introducing the Anthony Rubio Barkin Bag, as a hat worn by his own chihuahua Kimba, complete with a matching retro trapeze coat.

Rubio said the inspiration for the pup’s look came from a famous photo of model Linda Evangelista wearing a handbag on her head, and orders for that bag design are now “piling up.”

One-third of all proceeds go to animal rescue, advocacy of pet adoption, as well as pet population control.

Anthony Rubio grew up in Latin culture at a time of rebellion and expression in fashion, which inspired his colorful vision and helped him evolve into an in-demand designer.

Before Rubio got into the world of pet fashion and earned the esteemed title of “master pet couturier,” he studied women’s wear design at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York.
