Born and raised in New York City, Pet Couturier Anthony Rubio originally studied women’s wear at New York’s Fashion Institute Of Technology. It wasn’t until the Spring of 2003 when he started designing for dogs after Anthony rescued a small dog he would named Bandit which had been terribly abused .
Shortly there after, socialites commissioned these exquisite creations for their four-legged family members and major media outlets started to notice.

Each garment is created by hand with maniacal obsession to achieve perfection and meticulously executed solely by Anthony Rubio.
