Rose Hill, founder of card publisher Rose Hill Designs is hosting a photoshoot with a twist tonight (March 1) at the design-led home furnishings and accessories store, Aria in Islington, London. Rose will be photographing over 100 dogs (and two cats!) in the special event which also coincides with the launch of an exclusive range of pet accessories for Aria featuring Rose’s iconic designs.
“It is going to be slightly crazy with all the dogs there and two cats – anything could happen!” says Rose. “It’s a really fun thing to do and has created a lot of publicity for the brand and new collection with Aria.”
At the event, pet owners will receive a free photograph of their pet, posed in a special photo booth designed by Rose using doggy accessories. There is also the opportunity for owners to commission Rose to paint one of her famous pet portraits in her distinctive pop-art style.
A selection of cards, notebooks and stickers from Rose’s collection will also be on sale.
There will be one very special canine guest making an appearance – Eroc the skateboarding dog.
“Eroc’s got quite a following on Instagram – more than 34,000 followers!” explains Rose. “I was very privileged to design a special Christmas card and pet portrait for Eroc’s owner before Christmas.”
