ELYSIAN’s CatWalk FurBaby Returns to New York Fashion Week 2024

by Amber Edwards
Get ready for an unforgettable evening of fashion, philanthropy, and furry friends as ELYSIAN’s Catwalk Furbaby makes its triumphant return to New York Fashion Week on September 5, 2024, at Sony Hall. This unique event, now in its second year, combines the glamour of the runway with the heartwarming cause of animal welfare.
DRC Ventures and The Root Brands were last year’s inaugural Catwalk Furbaby title sponsors. During last year’s CatWalk Furbaby event, we saw the launch of Merci Dupre Clothiers, a mission-driven fashion brand dedicated to enhancing the health and wellness of people and our planet. Founded by Dr. Christina Rahm, a scientist, artist, mother, and fashion engineer, Merci Dupre Clothiers introduced their groundbreaking “Super Skin Coating” technology, which infuses protective agents into both clothing and skin, offering an additional layer of defense against harmful environmental toxins. The brand’s debut showcased luxury eco-fashion and protection, with models wearing patented tech-fabric in various colors and silhouettes while an immersive video highlighted the global issues we face.
ELYSIAN’s Inspiring Women participants will once again take center stage, each partnering with a cutting-edge fashion designer, a top runway model, a rescue philanthropy, and a beloved four-legged furbaby. These remarkable women will showcase their passion for fashion and their commitment to making a difference in the lives of animals in need.
Throughout the event, participants will raise money in philanthropic support for their chosen animal welfare charities, highlighting the important work being done to protect and care for our furry companions. The goal is to not only create a spectacular fashion experience but also to make a tangible impact on the lives of animals across the country.
A distinguished Celebrity Judge Panel will be on hand to evaluate the participants’ efforts, awarding the top three with a Judge’s Award, People’s Choice Award, and Publisher’s Award. The animal charity selected by each of these winning Inspiring Women will receive a generous $25,000 donation directly from the event’s sponsors, ensuring that the impact of Catwalk Furbaby extends far beyond the runway.
New York’s legendary fashion designers will be working closely with ELYSIAN’s Inspiring Women to create stunning, one-of-a-kind clothing and accessories for both the models and the participating furbabies. This collaboration promises to push the boundaries of fashion while celebrating the bond between humans and their animal companions.
As anticipation builds for this extraordinary event, animal lovers, fashion enthusiasts, and philanthropists alike are encouraged to mark their calendars for September 5, 2024. Catwalk Furbaby at Sony Hall promises to be an unforgettable evening that celebrates the power of fashion to make a difference in the world.
