Introduction

Fashion design, as it is seen today, is an industry that started in the 19th century. Although the dressmaker to Queen Marie Antoinette, Rose Bertin, is known as the first French fashion designer, it was Charles Frederick Worth who first had his label sewn into his clothes. Since then, the global fashion industry has grown to gargantuan proportions with most labels selling both ready-to-wear and haute couture fashions all around the world. If the shapes and colors of the fashion industry intrigue and inspire you, then you might find the perfect name for your dog in this list of fashion inspired dog names.

Fashion Inspired Dog Name Considerations

While choosing a name for your new canine companion is generally an enjoyable experience, it is also an important one. Choosing a name that your dog naturally responds to may help to enhance training but a name that is difficult for you or other members of the household to consistently pronounce can cause confusion, possibly impacting both training and bonding. If you have narrowed down the field of names for your new dog to names that are inspired by fashion, there are several factors that can be taken into account when you are pinpointing exactly the right moniker. If you are more interested in contemporary looks and designs you may lean towards names like Alaïa, Moschino, or Betsey, while those who wish to honor historical figures from the fashion world may choose names such as Worth or Rose. Some pet parents even may prefer to reference a particular style or type of clothing, giving their dogs names like Knickerbocker, Garçonne, or Déco. In some cases, the breed of the dog may influence the decision and breeds like the Blue Picardy Spaniel or the French Bulldog may be more likely to receive names like Poiret or Chériut while an Italian breed like the Maltese may be dubbed Armani or Pierre.
