Little Dog Fashion is honored to be part of this exclusive group of artisans from all over the world!  

"ABOUT US (The Artisan Group):

At The Artisan Group™ we are on a mission to introduce Hollywood to the best of the handcrafted movement. We do it by providing owners of artisan businesses the chance to introduce their products to celebrities, industry leaders and members of the press through participation in major award show gift lounges such as those leading up to The Academy Awards*, The Golden Globes* and The Primetime Emmys*. Because The Artisan Group takes a collaborative approach to participation in these lounges, a marketing opportunity that would be prohibitively expensive for most small companies becomes surprisingly affordable.

Members of The Artisan Group showcase an array of handcrafted products, including jewelry; bath and spa products; designer stationery and paper goods; crocheted accessories; children’s apparel and toys; ceramics; purses and totes; hand-poured candles; hand-bound books and journals; illustrations and paintings; hand-dyed scarves; fine art photography; hair accessories; pet accessories and toys; and woodworked items.

The Artisan Group also offers members guidance in sales, marketing, social media and public relations. Our representatives are experienced and have acted as spokespersons for many artists at Hollywood's top gift lounges, with fantastic results. Because they know and trust us, most celebrities will pose for a professional photo with our artisans’ products.

Participation in The Artisan Group is by invitation only. The result is an exclusive, close-knit community of talented artisans who exhibit excellence of product, great product photography, impressive branding and online shop presence, unique products, an established online sales record and products appropriate (size-wise) for gifting."

Being part of this wonderful organization means that Little Dog Fashion designs and products will be introduced to celebrities, their staff and members of the press during individual gifting opportunities and while participating in events like the Golden Globe events, Oscars and Emmys to name only a few.  Refer to the subcategories to find out about individual celebrity giftings and events.

  • Bethenny Frankel

    The first gifting opportunity came shortly after joining TAG.  This one was for Bethenny Frankel, star of Bravo TV's "Bethenny Ever After", and former co-star of "The Real Housewives of New York.

    Our first gift was to go to Bethenny's Lhasa Apso mix Cookie who suffers from a rare disease causing her to bruise spontaneously and without cause.

    That meant that designing and making a little outfit for her could be problematic and an alternative was needed.  After finding this picture of Cookie in a closet, the idea of a special blanket with Cookie's face embroidered on it was born.

    First the blanket was knitted with red yarn and then stretched over a large quilting hoop.  Then the embroidery began.

    The pictures below show the process from the start of the embroidery to the finished product.


    The finished product!
