And we’re only one week in…
Sorry Gigi and Bella, you’ve been usurped—our favourite runway model is now Raja.
The gorgeous dog of Naeem Khan totally stole the show at the Indian designer’s New York Fashion Week display, with the pup following Khan out for his bow.
The mini-Australian shepherd scampered down the catwalk, zig-zagging behind Khan’s legs as the crowd whooped and applauded.
You can catch a glimpse of Raja’s star turn here (just scroll through to the last clip):
The well-behaved doggo also lapped up the attention backstage, posing for photographers as models got prepped to showcase the Autumn/Winter ’18 collection.
IMG Models, we reckon Raja should be your next signing.
Aside from the pup’s appearance, the rest of the catwalk display was also mesmerising, with a collection rich in kaleidoscopic colour, ornate embroidery and ethereal fabrics.
High-shine evening gowns dripping in sequins and beads were a key element, complemented by glamorously accented athleisurewear.
The Mumbai-born designer, who is now based in the US, is a firm favourite of Queen Noor of Jordan, as well as many other royals including the Duchess of Cambridge.
He’s also got a fond place in our heart for his vibrant palettes and embellishments, season after season.
Now, if only we could snap up Raja in the new collection…
