Her cult sunglasses are worn by Rihanna, Alexa Chung, Solange and Gwen Stefani, and now a rescued puppy mill pooch with a floppy tongue. Antipodean fashion designer Karen Walker has enlisted none other Toast the dog to front her Summer 2015 eyewear campaign!
With more instagram followers than you and me, (155k and counting) – Toast is a social media sensation. Rescued from a puppy mill by by publicist Kate Sturino and comedian Josh Ostrovsky, a.k.a. The Fat Jew, Toast, a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel, is famed for her signature lolling tongue (a result of losing her teeth due to poor dental care) and flowing honey locks.
“We were after a model for this campaign who could fit with our caramel-ly colour palette and also someone whose hair would work with our three wind machines hitting her from every angle to create a slightly seventies vibe. Toast ticked every one of those boxes,” said Walker.
