Meet the Atlanta based designer behind the exquisite designs of .
From a professional background in Graphic Arts, to the creative world of Canine Couture Fashion, Barbara Merrifield isn’t your typical designer. The world of canine fashion was born from an almost maniacal obsession to outfit her furbaby Zoey in functional yet fashion forward harnesses.
“I couldn’t find anything that fit my style. I had no background
in fashion design other than watching my mom sew, but I decided to give it a
go. I made cute harnesses for Zoey then dresses with the aid of YouTube
tutorials. I think my professional background in Graphic Arts, gave me a keen
analytical eye for
fashion and the artistic capabilities to handcraft luxury couture, plus I’m a fast learner.” Barbara says.
