Over centuries specific breeds of dog have gone in and out of fashion as the ultimate accessory from nobility to the runway. Through paintings, fashion photography, and accessories this exhibition chronicles the rise and fall of dogs in fashion. Fashionable Dogs tracks the arc of popularity of several breeds through recent history, diving deep into such breeds as the Borzoi, Greyhound, Poodle, Pekingese, Japanese Chin, French Bulldog, and Great Dane.
Fashionable Dogs is made possible in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
