The Famous Pets Taking Over The Fashion Industry

​From private jets to fashion campaigns, we reveal the pets leaving their (paw) prints on the fashion industry



That's how many fans Marc Jacobs' dog Neville has accrued on Instagram. 

Spending his days at Marc Jacobs headquarters in New York, Neville (referred to as 'the hardest working dog in fashion' by T magazine) is often seen eating burgers served by waiters, lounging by the pool, taking private jets with his canine friends and being walked by models such as Carolyn Murphy, Taylor Hill and Kendall Jenner.

If that wasn't enough, the four-year-old bull terrier has just bagged himself a book, aptly titled Neville Jacobs: I'm Marc's Dog featuring Instagram snaps of his glamorous lifestyle around the globe and, following a career modelling for front covers of Paper magazine and Architectural Digest.


To celebrate Neville's continuing success, we explore the fashion industry pets giving the models a run for their money (and snacks):
