Now, A Fashion Week To Support The Cause Of Tiger

A fashion week in Kolkata has come to the rescue of the dwindling population of tigers in theWith a theme of eco-fashion, the five-day ‘Kolkata Fashion and Lifestyle Week’ (KFLW), beginning February 24, is in support of the ‘Save our Tigers’ campaign launched by WWF India.”This is a fashion week with a cause. We will try and create awareness to save the wildlife, especially the tigers. With fewer tigers left in India, now it is high time we became aware of this issue and do our bit to protect the animals,” Yudhajit Dutta, organiser of the fashion extravaganza, told reporters today.

Since the United Nations has declared 2010 as the ‘International Year of Bio-diversity’, KFLW has decided to take this a step further by aiming to present eco-friendly fashion, he said.The fashion event will try to promote stylised clothing that uses environmentally sensitive fabrics and responsible production techniques.Though the designers have not been asked to present their collection on this issue, one of the ramp shows of KFLW could be on this theme.

“We plan to donate a certain portion of the proceeds to the ‘Save the Tiger’ campaign too,” Dutta said.

Cuddle Up to Your Purse with Fuzzy Nation's Doggie Bags

001487589

It takes a lot for a sophisticated fashionista to turn her head. And we can guarantee that all the leashes, potty patches and cat beds outside our office doors have rarely garnered a glance — there’s just no way we can compete with high-end celebrity fashion.So you can imagine our surprise when a mate stopped in her tracks and gasped at the sight of glittery, winged Stella the Pug, the flagship product from Fuzzy Nation, a company that makes tiny purses, ostensibly for tweens. Purses in the likenesses of Shar Peis, Chinese Cresteds, and yes, pugs. Pooches as handbags: Why didn’t we think of that?

Fuzzy Nation’s two pooch purse lines — the OMG! Collection, and Plushious Bags — are less about function and utility than they are about having something over-the-top precious to tote around in the crook of your arm. They make unique gifts, have got fantastic packaging, and they’re certainly worthy of any princess, whether she’s 6 years old or 60. Fuzzy Nation carries lots of other goodies, like earmuffs with little pug heads on either end, customizeable bags (who doesn’t want a picture of their own little Fluffy over their arm?), jewelry, plush toys, and — why not? They’ve got winestoppers, too.

The products aren’t cheap (items range from $22-$180), but the payback in coos and smiles is worth it. Plus, if you order directly from Fuzzy Nation, you get a free gift for purchases over $50. Can’t complain about that!
