Dogs take to the cat walk for Aberdeen fashion week.
The catwalk is to become the dogwalk next month as a north-east fashion event shows off canine models for the first time.
Aberdeen Fashion Week, which launched in 2013, will see designers and models from all over the world come to the Granite City.
This time round they will be joined by man’s best friend for the event, which will take place on May 3 to 6.
The idea came about when Lydia Cutler, the founder and director of Aberdeen Fashion Week, took on board Nicola Ritchie, whose Dyce-based company Stitchy Ritchie designs dog collars.
She said: “We have one Aberdeen-based dog collar designer taking part this year and we thought the best way to give her a good platform was with dogs modelling the collars.
“Twenty dogs will walk down the runway wearing the collars.”
Lydia said that this is the first time non-human models have performed in the city’s fashion week.
She said: “We want to do new things and come up with new concepts for Aberdeen Fashion Week.
“There will be a huge variety of different dogs – they are all beautiful and very obedient.
“Our main criteria was just to find dogs that would be well-behaved and that we could feel confident taking down a runway.”
