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.
