May 21, 2014 (Newswire.com) - Hodges Collection, a women's contemporary brand based in Huntington Beach, CA recently launched their fall/winter collection by teaming up with local Orange County animal rescue organizations Recycled Love Dog Rescue and All Breed Dog Rescue (www.allbreeddogrescue.org) for their semi-annual lifestyle shoot.
The idea to team up with local animal rescue organizations came to Ms. Hodges when she found that she was spending much of her time on social media advocating for dogs that were in need of rescue and adoption. A lifelong animal lover and advocate, Hodges realized that pairing her brand with several of the animals that needed forever homes would be a great way to pair fashion which is her business with her love for animals.
"I have rescue dogs and they are the most loyal and loving dogs that I could ever ask for. I am always advocating and trying to save as many as I can. There are way too many for me or any other individual to save so I thought, what better way to try and get others involved and get some of these amazing dogs a forever home than featuring some of the rescues in my lifestyle campaign. This is a great opportunity for me and my company to give back to the community and feature some of our latest designs featured with these beautiful animals. We are extremely happy and humbled to showcase these gracious and wonderful animals and rescue organizations," said Deanna Hodges, President, Hodges Collection.
Hodges Collection is the epitome of California chic fashion with flowing dresses made from the most luxurious fabrics. It is available in more than 500 specialty boutiques and resorts in 6 countries. You can visit them at www.hodgescollection.com.
"Today our rescue dogs were blessed to share the limelight with natural beauty of the ocean combined with the gorgeous models wearing a beautiful line of clothing. Thank you to Deanna for having a loving heart for the voiceless and homeless furkids" said Phyllis Smith-Vanboxtel Osh of Recycled Love Dog Rescue and All Breed Dog Rescue.
