Photographer Paul Nathan has documented New York's best-dressed dogs, their owners, and the couturiers who design their made-to-order outfits. While socializing with the four-legged, Nathan attended 'pawties', 'puptials,' and 'barkmitzvahs'. He photographed married dogs who get around in yellow cabs wearing matching outfits and visited the homes of doggie moms and dads with walk-in closets for their 'fur children' filled with enough designer outfits to rival any New York fashionista. And finally he chose fifteen of the most fashionable dogs to invite to his studio along with their favorite couture outfits to pose for this book. The result is a giddily glamorous romp through New York's 'Doggie World' where the city's most fashionable mutts get dressed to the nines even for a walk around the block.
