Washington, DC, April 14, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Paul Wharton, fashion and style contributor on FOX Channel 5 in Washington DC, has recently participated in several televsion spots helping to promote the first annual fashion fund raiser for the Washington DC Humane Society called Fashion for Paws.
Fashion for Paws will feature forty of Washington DC's most celebrated and well-known personalities as the fashion models. This is an interesting twist for Paul Wharton as he is famous for helping models refine their look and improve their performance. He is currently developing a web site toward that end to help both seasoned and aspiring models with information and exposure to advance their careers. He has even created a link for those that wish to be updated on the launch date: http://www.evolutionlook.diamax.com Along with their photos, models will be able to display their awards, achievements and resumes.
Now, however, its Paul's turn to "strut his stuff" on the catwalk. Paul and other well-known Washington celebrities will be walking the runway leading or holding dogs decked out in designer duds, all for charity. Designer doggie fashions for spring 2007 will be displayed as well as women's and men's ready- to-wear apparel.
The event will be held Saturday, April 14th, 2007 at the Embassy of France, 41401 Reservoir Road, NW from 7:00pm to 10:00pm. Thanks to the exposure generated by Paul Wharton and others, tickets are already sold out and a waiting list has been started.
All proceeds will go the Washington DC Humane Society, the oldest animal protection agency in the capital city. Specifically proceeds will go into their Good Home Gurantee program, a five-year plan that promises to find a home for every adoptable dog and cat that enters the shelter by 2010.
Toka Salon and Day Spa is the official salon sponsor of Fashion for Paws. The fashion show will be followed by an after party at 11:00pm at Blue Gin in Georgetown.
