Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Toast – a former puppy mill pooch – has just landed her first fashion campaign modelling sunglasses for designer Karen Walker.
Toast has risen to fame in recent months through her Instagram account and caught the New Zealand based designer’s eye after seeing the pup wear several pairs of glasses in her social posts.
Known by her 157,000 Instagram followers for her gorgeous coat and drooping tongue – Toast was rescued by comedian Josh Ostrovky and publicist Katie Sturino in 2011. The pair nursed the adorable canine back to health who lost all of her teeth due to lack of care at the puppy farm.
In the campaign, Toast models various sunglasses alongside designer Karen Walker who couldn’t praise the cute pup highly enough:
“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 70s vibe. Toast ticked every one of those boxes,” said Walker.
