The momentum of the feline species in fashion has been steadily rising over the past couple of seasons. While they are so often the accessories — jumping over a model's head, hanging off a celebrity arm, cuddling up to total strangers and pretending to love it against their wills just for the sake of a beautiful picture — last night at the Algonquin Hotel, their moment finally came. The cats starred in a runway show that was part of the birthday party of the hotel's resident cat, Matilda. The result was fierce, ferosh, and perhaps a little frightening — but such is the very nature of boundary breaking. Enjoy highlights in the slideshow.
