Photos and more: Charlotte Pride’s Canine Couture raises funds for Humane Society


Charlotte Pride had a phenomenal time seeing all of the fabulous pooches and their owners who made their way to our third annual Canine Couture — the most fabulous doggie fashion show you’ve ever seen — on June 6 at Triple C Brewing Company in South End.

If you missed it, we definitely plan on seeing you next year! Take a look at a full gallery of photos from the event here, provided by Photography By Dunn.

Several doggie-fashionistas signed up to participate in the runway show, which also included models from Silverfly and Lipp Boutique. Dressed in their finest summer wear and swimsuits, our beautiful models strutted their stuff with their best friends in tow!

For the first time, Charlotte Pride partnered with the Humane Society of Charlotte to host the event — which raised $400 for the organization and its worthwhile work with local pets and animals.

We’d like to thank Humane Society CEO Shelly Moore for being a guest judge of the runway show, along with judges Miss Charlotte Pride 2014 Kassandra Hylton and Joanne Spataro. And, many thanks go to our emcees for the event — Chirl Girl and Francene Marie Morris — and special guest Selena Price, Miss North Carolina World 2015.

Additionally, we’re grateful for sponsor Mezzo1 and additional companies which sponsored gifts or were present as vendors…
