Meet the Surprising Inspirations Behind These Elaborate Dog Couture Looks

Meet the Surprising Inspirations Behind These Elaborate Dog Couture Looks

By Kristyn Pomranz

Bravo's newest digital series, Furry, Fierce, and Fabulous stars the king of doggie couture Roberto Negrin as he works with everyday dogs to create runway-ready fashions inspired by their unique adoption stories.

In fashion, anything—or anybody—can serve as an inspiration. (Never forget that time Bjork dressed up like a swan at the 2001 Oscars or that time Lady Gaga did anything at all.) But for doggie couture designer Robert Negrin, “The inspiration comes naturally when I meet the dogs.”

In the Bravo digital series Furry, Fierce, and Fabulous, Negrin meets five dynamic dogs with unique adoption stories. After getting to know the pups’ personalities—and talking with their owners—Negrin gains a clear vision of how to reflect the dogs through fashion.

Sometimes the inspiration is obvious (for example, Napoleon Bonaparte for a small dog with a big personality named, appropriately, Napoleon Bone-aparte), while other times it’s unexpected (Jax the pit bull gets a gentleman’s makeover to buck the misconception that pitties are mean)—but no matter the inspiration, Negrin nails it every time.

Here are the final products—and the people that inspired them.
