What do red hot runway photos and puppies have in common? Both were the focus of Fashion for Paws’ first photography exhibit held at L2 in Georgetown. Fashion for Paws, a fundraising program of the Washington Humane Society, has long been putting on haute coture runway shows each year to support the capital’s cutest cause- animals in need. This year, the organization decided to showcase the best photos from their runway history as a precursor to Fotoweek DC.

The event was hosted by Revamp.com, an online site for fashion addicts, and drew a crowd of local VIPs, 

fashionistas, and animal devotees. Among the night’s dapper attendees were Tiffany Carter, Steuart Martens, Jessica Gibson, and Jan Cousteau. Tara de Nicolas, Kristina D’Ambrosio, , and also turned out to demonstrate their support for the cause. But the photos were just the beginning of the evening’s entertainment- guests sipped cocktails, gave four-legged attendees a cuddle, and mingled late into the night. Most importantly, the event was a smashing success, raising over three thousand dollars for the Humane Society. Hopefully there will be  a sequel to this innagural photography exhibit- we’re smitten kittens for the cause!
