Fashion for Paws® (F4P) benefiting the Washington Humane Society (WHS) began in 2007 with the first spring Runway Show. In just its first 8 years, the Fashion for Paws® Runway Show has been a great success, selling out each year, raising nearly $3.2 million for WHS and generating a significant amount of national and regional media coverage. The models walking the runway raise a minimum of $3,000 for WHS to participate, with many escorting their fashionably dressed dog down the runway. Designer doggie couture is organized by Mallory Hancock of Regal & Pooch, a luxury canine couture brand featuring one of a kind accessories and clothing for the trendy pooch. Women’s and men’s ready-to-wear apparel is provided exclusively by Tysons Galleria, home to the world’s most luxurious retailers. The event features an awards presentation to honor the F4P top fundraiser, winning "Model Washingtonian of the Year," and the first and second runner up on the runway May 2nd. The winners will be chosen based on who has raised the most money in a friendly fundraising competition in the 12 weeks leading up to the event. All models who raise $10,000+ will be included in the 2016 Fashion for Paws® Runway Show Super Model Calendar.
