What is aways an unforgettable evening, Jeffrey Fashion Cares will kick off with a cocktail reception and dynamic silent auction followed by a high-energy live auction.

DOTC Doggies on the Catwalk Event + Fashion Show 2019

The 12th annual DOTC - Doggies on the Catwalk event and fashion show was one for the books! It was an incredible evening of fashion and philanthropy. Hosted for a second year at the beautiful 25th floor of Greenberg Traurig in Buckhead, guests enjoyed lite-bites, The Macallan cocktails and Emerald Hare Rose, complimentary make-up touches by DIOR Beauty, fashion illustrations to take home and of course, service dog puppies to hold.

Emcees Tad & Kara from the Tad, Drex & Kara Morning Show on b98.5 did an amazing job interacting with guests and brought the right level of energy to the event. After auctioning off a Tiffany’s & Co dog bowl, collar and leash, the heart of the event took center stage. A big (and successful) change to the programming this year included honoring four service dog recipients from Canine Assistants. They took to the ‘catwalk’ with the service dog while their story was shared with guests. While it was an emotional moment, it helped guests see first hand what the mission of DOTC really is. During his heartfelt greeting to guests, founder E. Vincent Martinez asked guests to “not lose sight” of why we’re all here.

The evening closed with a dynamic runway show of mens and womenswear looks by Saks Fifth Avenue. DJ Ryan Noise set the tone for the hottest and latest Spring Summer looks from Balmain, Saint Laurent, Fendi, Burberry, Oscar de la Renta, The Row and many more fabulous labels to include covet-worthy shoewear by Louboutin, Dior, Givenchy and Raf Simons.

The Future of Fashion

The future of fashion is with Une Belle Revolution so, if our future is held within our youth, then I can firmly say that with the talent coming from UBR, the future will most certainly be stylish. UBR is lead by Ms. V. Kottavei Williams who works tirelessly and passionately harnessing the creative spirit of her young and ambitious students. This unique fashion design program was created eighteen years ago by fashionado’s E. Vincent Martinez and taken over by Ms. Williams in 2012.

So exactly what is Une Bell Revolution and what makes it so special? UBR is Grady High School’s fashion design program - yes, high school. Grady High School is a gem, the shining star within its school district, excelling in the arts: visual, music, photography and fashion.

With Ms. Williams at the helm of the fashion program, her students are operating at a college level. They are learning garment construction, pattern making, special sewing techniques and illustration. By their senior year, UBR students are designing, creating and producing cohesive capsule collections. The annual runway show is a awe-inspiring and energetic celebration of the vision, talent and creativity of our youth.

Since the beginning of the fashion program, graduating designers have gone off to notable fashion schools like the Art Institute of Atlanta, Scad and FIT to name a few.

DOTC -  Doggies on the Catwalk  founder, E. Vincent Martinez presented Ms. Williams with a donation for her program. DOTC was created by Martinez in his Grady High School classroom 12 years ago and in alignment with the DOTC Foundation’s mission of supporting arts programs and fashion schools, the SEAM Grant has been created. Une Belle Revolution is its first recipient.  SEAM - Supporting Education in Apparel Mastery .
