Blogger to help find stylish dog

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion - Belinda Cipri­ano

FASH­ION blogger Ka­te­rina Deric will judge pam­pered pooches as part of the Mt Hawthorn Streets and Lanes Fes­ti­val Dog Show on Sun­day.

The Styled By Bella bou­tique owner will judge the best dressed, ugli­est and cutest dog cat­e­gories along with Perth MLA John Carey.

“John Carey’s dog show is an in­sti­tu­tion,” Miss Deric said.

“I think the crowd’s re­ac­tion is im­por­tant, so I urge the lo­cal com­mu­nity to come down and as­sist... it is quite a bit of pres­sure nam­ing the cutest dog of Mt Hawthorn.

“Across the four cat­e­gories, I’m most in­ter­ested in the ‘best dressed’ for ob­vi­ous rea­sons.”

Mr Carey, who will have his dog Chewie with him on the day, said he was ex­cited to bring the for­mer Beau­fort Street Fes­ti­val event to Mt Hawthorn.

“The com­pe­ti­tion is so much fun; we are ex­pect­ing about 100 dogs to enter,” he said.

The street fes­ti­val, or­gan­ised by the Mt Hawthorn Hub, will in­clude pop-up at­trac­tions and al­fresco of­fer­ings from lo­cal traders.

The fes­ti­val will spill into the sur­round­ing al­leys and lanes of the neigh­bour­hood.

Mt Hawthorn Hub chair­man Gra­ham Cong­don said this year’s fes­ti­val had a strong fam­ily fo­cus.

“The 2016 fes­ti­val trans­formed Mt Hawthorn into an ur­ban play­ground of­fer­ing a fun, free fam­ily day out re­flec­tive of the strong neigh­bourly cul­ture,” he said.

As well as judg­ing the dog show, Miss Deric will be roam­ing the fes­ti­val hand­ing out spe­cial vouch­ers. The dog show will be held on the main stage on the cor­ner of Scar­bor­ough Beach Road and Flin­ders Street at 4pm.
