Pampered pooches were out in force last week as PetsPyjamas.com showcased their latest collection with a special pet fashion show.

Made in Chelsea star Rosie Fortescue, 22, was among the proud owners who took to the ‘dog
walk’ with their canine in tow.

Rosie’s adorable dachshund Noodle strutted his stuff in a Kate Maconie collar while fellow pooches modelled the latest doggy fashions from the likes of Mulberry, Wouapy and Paw Paw Cashmere.

Among the designer items on display was a canary yellow Mulberry raincoat priced at 150.

‘I like to accessorise her [Noodle] with neckerchiefs, and she has a Ralph Lauren Christmas jumper, but I would draw the line at putting her in boots or dressing her in a hot sweater in the summer,’ Rosie told the Daily Mail after the show.

‘Just because dogs can’t speak to tell you they don’t want to wear something, it doesn’t mean you should take advantage of them.’
