Are you are friend of pug dogs? In german they are called "Mops" which is much better suited, me thinks. I'm personally not a really a fan of these, but, they are so in fashion at the moment, that i can't help seeing them everywhere. Last time i met lovely fellow blogger and friend Barbara in town, and, over tea and sandwiches we laughed so much about "Mops en vogue" that i decided to post about it.
My friend Monika who's a fashion designer, made a design for a Mops-T-Shirt for our magazine KidsLife and we got Julie Gaston to model it for us. Even though my cat will be jeallous, i think it looks gorgeous!
The little bejewelled Mops in the second picture was a present i got from a friend last year - it adornes one of my handbags.
And while browsing the internet for the funny little creatures, i came across an interesting project. In collaboration with Steiff and Unicef, Luisaviaroma launched “Pug Dogs for Happy Kids”. A project that includes 20 of fashion’s most famous designers creating a "Mops" in their own style. Soon, they will be available on luisaviaroma.com and all funds raised from the sale of these cute soft toy pups will be donated to UNICEF to help disadvantaged children in Bangladesh. Want to join in?
So, what's your opinion on "Mops" - ugly or sweet?
