“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.
