Von Furstenberg or Suno doing it for women, there are also
designers doing florals for dogs,” Donaldson enthuses. “I spend
a lot of time going through sites or Instagram and Facebook to
find people who are doing this in an interesting way, and I try to
partner people fashion with pet fashion.” Mrs. Sizzle has struck
a popular chord with her Instagram account, garnering close to
7,000 followers and being written up in media like The Daily Front
Row’s Chic Report, a bible of the hottest trends in the fashion biz.
One of her most satisfying events was on April Fool’s Day. The
iconic luxury store, Barney’s, announced that its restaurant, Fred’s,
would now allow dogs and offer a canine menu. Donaldson
set up a shoot using her dogs, Edie and Clair, and Remy, who
belongs to W magazine editor Jane Larkworthy. However, she
also wanted to include shelter dogs, as is a Mrs. Sizzle must.
“I reached out to Social Tees, a great rescue here in NYC, and
they came with three of the most adorable puppies. They sat at
the table shoot with us and then got adopted, probably because
they were cute, but also because they were sitting at that table.”
