Luisa via Roma recently collaborated with twenty fashion brands (from Antonio Marras and Balmain to Valentino and Theysken’s Theory) to customize a pug dog doll produced by Steiff. They’ve invited select fashion bloggers to ‘sponsor’ each each pug; my friends Tina and Kelly of the Bag Snob is currently sponsoring the Balmain pug. I, on the other hand, cherry-picked the most ornate pug of them all: Francois by Mary Katrantzou.

An online auction will be announced shortly. Proceeds from the sales of the stuffed toys will be donated to UNICEF to support disadvantaged children.
