2005 Holiday Spending On Pet Gifts Expected To Reach $2.6 Billion

CHICAGO – What do you get the furry fashionista who has everything? The designers at Oscar Newman luxury pet couture have the answer: hand-embellished apparel and jewelry that will have your posh pooch sitting up and begging for more. This holiday season, close to 154 million pet owners are expected to spend $2.6 billion on pet gifts according to a national pet owner’s survey conducted by The American Pet Products Manufacturers Association. The growing “pampered puppy” trend has been fueled in part by the likes of Paris Hilton, Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson appearing everywhere with their chic canines. And for the increasing number of consumers who are looking for unique holiday gifts for their pets, Oscar Newman offers an exclusive line of elegant, fashionable and high-quality clothing and accessories.

The painstaking result of artistry and craftsmanship, each item in the Oscar Newman collection is hand-embellished in limited quantities with premium materials including special hand-dyed fabrics and yarns, custom appliqués, original embroidered designs, hand-sewn beading and Swarovski crystal and pearl accents. This obsession with detail is what raises Oscar Newman designs to the level of couture luxury, while the attention to comfort and wearability produces apparel and jewelry with casual ease.

Created by artists and sisters Charisa Antigua and Carmina O’Connor, Oscar Newman was born out of the sisters’ passion for fashion, which is shared by their pets.

“The holidays are a special time to share with family members—and that always
includes our pets,” said Antigua.

Oscar Newman luxury pet couture is the ultimate fashion (dog) house for discerning pets and their owners. Offering a complete line of coats, sweaters, t-shirts, dresses and jewelry, Oscar Newman has something to suit every pet’s style and every owner’s fashion sensibility.

“We are committed to delivering the highest quality apparel possible to please even the pickiest pup,” said O’Connor. “We don’t want to walk around wearing the same thing as everyone else, and neither do our pets!”

Prices for individual items range from $12 for doggie anklets to $140 for a genuine leather coat.
