The recession ended plans for a spring version of Pet Fashion Week on February 8th and 9th. The fall event has been running every August since 2004. “There was a real boom … 2006 until this summer,” says show coordinator Derek DiFante. “Now it seems it’s tapered off a bit.” DiFante said they might have ended up with only 50 to 60 presenters at the spring event. But he’s still confident that the luxury pet market, home to “the $1,000 coats or $2,000 fragrances” is “recessionproof.”
