The Washington Humane Society's 6th Annual Fashion for Paws took place at the National Building Museum in Washington D.C. on April 14 2012, featuring fundraising models who agreed to raise a minimum of $5000 in the weeks leading up to the event. Opening the event were custom made designs by the Fashion Institute of Design and Marketing's 2012 Debut Class. Several of FIDM's top design students were asked to create a custom couture outfit exclusively for the Fashion for Paws show to match their line that was recently showcased in Los Angelas at FIDM's annual Debut Gala. Five students were asked to take on the challenge of creating one-of-a-kind, high fashioned garments for models and then a matching outfit for some of Fashion for Paws much loved "model" dogs to wear down the runway. These custom creations were designed and made completely by the students from the Debut 2012 group.
