The Future is Meow: Cat Fashion Show

  • San Diego Art Institute 1439 El Prado San Diego, CA 92101 (map)



Saturday, February 27 at 6 PM - 8 PM
Admission is $10.00

Karl Lagerfeld, eat your heart out: The Future is Meow and we’re here to make sure it’s greeted in style. SDAI is hosting a feline inspired fashion show featuring both human and feline models and apparel. That’s right—you can even register your very own cat to model in the show (amateurs welcome)! 

In keeping with the theme of our February exhibition, "Best in Show," SDAI has invited local designers to prepare an evening of sartorial bliss. Don the designs of Francisco Medavog; Hi Hairy (Jenni Beckstrom); Macy Daisy; and Frances Mann while local models prowl the catwalk. Kitties shying away from the spotlight? No problem. We’ll have fresh duds for them, too, and they can wait to strike a pose until safe at home with their selfie sticks. 

Join us to participate, to purr-chase new threads, or simply to enjoy this first-time ever spe-cat-ular. If you would like to reserve a spot for your very own feline ubermodel, please contact

* T.U.K. will provide footwear for (human) models

* We're teaming up with Uber so you can ride in style to the Cat Fashion Show! To get your first Uber ride free (up to $20), sign up at or download the app, and enter the promo code SDAI.
