HAUTE DOGS x Harbin SHS Calendar 2024

I am pleased to announce that I’m one of the milliners who created a piece for the 2024 Haute Dogs Calendar!  Get in quick to place your bid on the pieces here

Now in its sixth year, the Haute Dogs Calender was founded by dog lover and milliner Awon Golding. 

Each calendar aims to spread joy and happiness while also providing crucial funds to help rescue, rehabilitate and rehome as many dogs as possible from abuse and neglect, specifically the illegal meat trade in China. Each month features a Harbin SHS dog wearing a one-of-a-kind hat by an all-star milliner.

The project runs as a campaign through Indiegogo and we must reach the target to be able for the project to launch.  The fundraiser is now live! See more details here

This year the partner for the project is  @slaughterhouse_survivors (Harbin SHS). Every single penny raised through calendar sales goes to rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming the dogs from the illegal meat trade in China. We need you to get behind us and start ordering! The photography for the project is taken by Lucy Reeve of @youandthedog

The piece was designed to be modelled by a beautiful dog and then go on to be part of an auction so it can be worn by a human as well.

I wanted to take part in this project because as I dog lover and milliner how could this not be a dream project!  I have a two year old Spoodle called Fergus, he is such a joy in my life and I am honoured to take part in this project to help bring together beautiful dogs with loving owners so they can experience the same.
