Laurren recognizes  the special bond between humans and their pets and continues in “Pet Fashion Industry Patterns” to inspire and guide those of us in the pet world to successfully incorporate her unique insight into pet trends and marketing into our  business plans. 4 paws up!” — Susan Marie - The Doggy Diva Show “Fashion has gone to the dogs...and cats and bunnies and ferrets name it, Laurren Darr writes about it in her latest book. More than a temporary fad, pet fashion is here to stay. Clothing on pets is not a new concept, but clothing gone couture and outfitting our family pets is all the rage, one that is here to stay. Laurren Darr tackles a topic with candor, wit, and a genuine appreciation for this topic. Bark is the black, and this dog blogger is barking with pride after reading this book.” — Carol Bryant of Fidose of Reality, Wigglebutt Warriors, and BlogPaws “What a wonderfully comprehensive read, Laurren!  The book is a fun & thorough look at the multi-billion dollar pet industry and what we can expect going forward.  I particularly enjoyed and appreciated the exploration of all the pet trends (so many of which are mirroring what’s going on in the ‘mainstream’ world) and how that applies to our furry counterparts! As diversity, eco/socially conscious trends are carving their way in the world of fashion & lifestyle-you fleshed out how the pet world will be affected.  So many great take-aways! A must read for anyone who wants to explore what we can expect in the pet world!”   — Jennifer Bartok-Taylor of Celebrity Catwalk It is one of those rare books that when I finished reading it..I realized that it was one of those special books that I never knew I wanted or needed. For anyone that wants a better understanding of our shared love for our pets and the pet fashion industry..this is the book. It was truly an enjoyable read and I recommend this book to all.” — Gregg R. Oehler, Chairman, NY Pet Fashion Show; Publisher /Editor of Hamptons Pet The Global Luxury Pet magazine“Laurren Darr’s incredible new book will help guide anyone that is looking to get into pet fashion, from ferrets to chickens to dogs and cats.  It’s a go to for pet professionals who want to incorporate pet fashion into their business and for their events. Perfect for everyday pet parents who want pet fashion and function for their pets in their everyday lives. This first of it’s kind book is something all pet fashion professionals should have for ideas, information, and inspiration.” — Nancy Hassel of American Pet Professionals
