Best of The Bronx: Dog fashion designer Anthony Rubio

Posted: Updated:
THE BRONX -

Dog fashion designer Anthony Rubio has taken his designs from the Bronx all the way to the runways of Paris, Milan and Los Angeles.

The Bronx native first combined his love of dogs and passion for fashion by sewing garments for his pets to stay warm.

Years later, Rubio's dog fashion styles have gained a serious following.

In 2012, he became the first pet designer showcased at New York Fashion Week.

Rubio's custom creations cost up to $900 per ensemble.

The Bronx native says his styles have been worn by dogs on catwalks around the world.
