“Fashion has gone to the dogs...and cats and bunnies and ferrets and....you name it, Laurren Darr writes about it in her latest book. More than a temporary fad, pet fashion is here to stay. Clothing on pets is not a new concept, but clothing gone couture and outfitting our family pets is all the rage, one that is here to stay. Laurren Darr tackles a topic with candor, wit, and a genuine appreciation for this topic. Bark is the black, and this dog blogger is barking with pride after reading this book.” — Carol Bryant of Fidose of Reality, Wigglebutt Warriors, and BlogPaws
“What a wonderfully comprehensive read, Laurren! The book is a fun & thorough look at the multi-billion dollar pet industry and what we can expect going forward. I particularly enjoyed and appreciated the exploration of all the pet trends (so many of which are mirroring what’s going on in the ‘mainstream’ world) and how that applies to our furry counterparts! As diversity, eco/socially conscious trends are carving their way in the world of fashion & lifestyle-you fleshed out how the pet world will be affected. So many great take-aways! A must read for anyone who wants to explore what we can expect in the pet world!” — Jennifer Bartok-Taylor of Celebrity Catwalk

About the Author
Laurren Darr is on a mission to unleash pet style by empowering pet fashion professionals who strengthen the bonds between pets and humans through their creative work. She's been a pug lover since her fi rst rescue of White Pines Tuttie circa age five. Tuttie was a magnificent creature that let little Laurren do everything with her. They played together, bathed together, ate together, and slept in the same bed. Most of all, Tuttie was completely happy to let Laurren dress her up, put clippy earrings and lipstick on her, and push her around in a shopping cart. Darr understands the deep roots and connections created between humans and animals through fashion because of this kinship. Her book about Tuttie, Lipstick On A Pug, won the Dog Writers Association of America Maxwell Medallion for 2015 Children's Book of the Year. Darr has over twenty years of marketing experience and has consulted with companies of all sizes- specializing in trade show marketing. She has won over 40 marketing awards and is a #1 best-selling author. Her publishing imprint, Left Paw Press, has printed numerous books on pet fashion, pug children's, medical, racing, and coloring books like PugDala Coloring Book that also won a Maxwell Medallion. In August 2013, Laurren combined her marketing experience and lifelong love of pet fashionology to launch International Association of Pet Fashion Professionals, an organization created to provide educational materials for pet fashion pros. She's been named a "Paw-er Woman" by Fidose of Reality and was a 2015 & 16 finalist for Pet Industry Woman of the Year by Women In The Pet Industry. She also completed her pet fashion certification from Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York City in 2015. Her Chicago-area life is busy with her stock car racing son (Zachary Tinkle), geneticist husband (Brad Tinkle), and the most stylish dog at the race track, Bella.
