Fashion designer Anthony Rubio presented his latest couture collection for canines in New York earlier this week.

Inspired by the Met Gala, Rubio’s Pet Gala was inspired by looks worn by stars like Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez and Billy Porter, but of course, recreated for dogs.

“My audience is the world. Everybody loves this,” said Rubio. “In the beginning, people used to question, ‘Why would you do that to a dog? What is this all about?’ And I said, ‘It’s about having fun. If you’re going to dress yourself to be in front of a camera, why not the dogs?’ I also do the cats, and I’ve also dressed a monkey.”

The canine creations are made of high-quality fabrics that are safe for the animals.

This was Rubio’s 10th annual pet gala in support of animal rescue organizations. About 30% of the proceeds go to charity.
