Deets: A one-of-a-kind Washington tradition returns as the Fashion for Paws 12th Annual Runway Show will take place Saturday, May 5th at 7 p.m. at the Omni Shoreham Hotel. Fundraising participants wearing apparel from the area’s hottest retailers and designers along with their canines in designer doggie couture will light up the Fashion for Paws runway once again, all to benefit the Humane Rescue Alliance.

Television personality and celebrity designer Carson Kressley will take the stage as master of ceremonies for the second straight year. The Emmy award winning star of Queer Eye and former contestant on Dancing with the Stars and The New Celebrity Apprentice will bring his love of dogs, eye for fashion, and endless energy to HRA’s 12th edition of this Washington, DC classic.

HRA is still accepting new participants who will fundraise for the opportunity to walk the runway with their pup. Participants that raise a minimum of $4,000 during a 15-week friendly, fundraising campaign will get the supermodel experience, with clothing, hair, and makeup provided. Visit for more information.

The Fashion for Paws Runway Show is a nationally acclaimed, one-of-a-kind luxury brand event that has raised more than $4 million since it launched in 2009.

Money raised by Fashion for Paws goes directly to the programs that benefit the homeless animals cared for by the Humane Rescue Alliance (HRA). HRA serves more than 60,000 animals each year.
