Cat takes the runway at Fashion Week
Feline model works it in New York City.
Lily, a 4-year-old rescue cat, owned the catwalk at designer Tracy Reese’s New York Fashion Week show on Sunday.
The Siamese blue point was part of an effort by Purina to show that cats can be leash-trained, though a case of nerves led to her getting a lift by a model.
“As a designer, I draw inspiration from everything around me, including cats,” said Reese. “I loved the idea of incorporating cats into the runway show; cats have a lot of energy, which was the perfect complement to the models and my new line.” — Read it at AP via the Huffington Post
