One of the highlights of Fashion Week was the Metlife sponsored fashion show "Snoopy in Fashion." Top designers from the United States and even one from Europe (Spijkers + Spijkers) created outfits based on the characters in Charles Schulz's Peanuts comic strip. And boy did those designers have a lot of fun!

Here is a quote from the Metlife website about the show: "Some of Snoopy's biggest fans and the biggest names in fashion, including Isaac Mizrahi, Betsey Johnson, Heatherette, and Pamella Roland to name a few, are teaming up with MetLife to present Snoopy's first-ever group designer fashion show at New York's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Each designer, inspired by their favorite Peanuts character, will create a unique couture runway outfit. Following the MetLife Snoopy in Fashion Show, Peanuts fans and fashionistas alike will have a chance to bid on the designers' unique runway creations in a special eBay auction benefiting Dress for Success."

This was a great show; the crowd cheered the models as they worked the runway. And then came Jeremy's Scott's hysterical dog coat and the show stopping whimsical Heatherette outfit (modeled by Omahyra Mota) and the normally reticent fashionistas in the audience went wild.

After all, everyone loves Peanuts.
