My colleague and friend Ada Nieves, a top pet fashion designer, not only whips up divine duds for dogs and cats, she also creates chic couture for chickens!
Ada is mom to a critter brood that includes seven Chihuahuas, a couple of kitties and a gaggle of cluckers, that all strut their stuff in fashion shows and other pet-themed events.
As you may remember, Ada organized and designed all of the kitty couture for the big Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals feline fashion show – in which Lily was a featured model – that took place at the Algonquin Hotel on Aug. 2.
Some of her furry and feathered kids were a huge hit at the recent Hester Street Fair, a fabulous pushcart vendors’ fair that takes place on Manhattan’s Lower East Side on Saturdays and Sundays from April to October.
A special Pet Weekend took place yesterday and today, during which posh pets got to strut their stuff in conjunction with human Fashion Week.
But the feathered fashionistas pictured above were by far the most unique models of all, and thoroughly enjoyed being cocks of the cat walk.
