New York is full of fabulous people, all with fabulous clothes, shoes, bags, and accessories. But the most fabulous accessory of them all, one that has not gone in and out of style with the changing seasons (and it’s a good thing because if this were case, I’d just feel awful) is, surprise, the dog. From tiny, toy-like breeds, the kind that fit in Vuitton carrying cases, up to larger scaled Italian Greyhounds and Basenjis, every New Yorker knows that a dog is the ultimate accessory to parade down the city streets. And normally they are just that, great for taking a stroll through SoHo or letting loose for some playtime in Central Park. But last week, a brand new event and venue was introduced to these high society dogs in the city-a holiday, cocktail society party held at Neue Gallerie, a museum specializing in early, 20th century German and Austrian art.

Not surprisingly, many of the guests were from the design profession. Brian Wolk and Claude Morais, both fashion designers attended with their pug. Textile designer Madeline Weinrib also attended with her Cavalier King Charles Spaniels in tow. Though the animals were not allowed in the galleries, they certainly took the lobby over, intellectually studying their surroundings and surely absorbing what a fabulous moment and breakthrough it was for dogs everywhere. When asked how it felt to be invited to such a swanky soiree, Weinrib’s spaniel, Gemma responded in a most excited manner. “This is an absolute breakthrough for us all. I can’t believe how far we’ve come. It truly is a tremendous feeling.” Well not really but, it sure would be cool if they could talk. If they could, can you even imagine how much behind the scenes drama we would be let in on, even more so than we already know? But they do always say that dogs are smarter than you think. Hmmm….
