But that’s only because some adorable pups accompanied a handful of the models strutting their stuff on the runway at the yearly fashion show, which raised $85,000 for Canine Assistants, an area nonprofit providing service dogs for individuals with physical disabilities or other special needs. Among those walking the red carpet in designer fashions provided by Saks Fifth Avenue were Simply Buckhead’s own Joanne Hayes, Suthingirl founder Ashley Stamoulis and style blogger and consultant Vickie Kirbo. The 300-plus guests bid on silent auction items and enjoyed signature cocktails, hors d’oeuvres from Le Bilboquet and lively jams from DJ Yvonne Monet. Former longtime local news anchor Monica Pearson emceed the event, which was founded 11 years ago by Fashionado style guru and Art Institute of Atlanta instructor E. Vincent Martinez.
