A Barkingside pet shop was the unlikely setting for a glamorous fashion shoot on Sunday.

Women’s clothing label Lashes of London chose Catwalk Pets in High Street as the setting for next year’s spring/summer collection.

Models posed with kittens, puppies, rabbits and some of the shop’s more unusual residents, including chickens.

Fashion director Nicole Levy said she knew the shop because she lives in South Woodford.

She added: “It wasn’t very logical, it’s just something I thought would be really fun and different.”

Catwalk Pets stocks all sorts of animals, including exotic lizards and even bats.

Owner Shazia Dar said: “A fashion shoot isn’t what you expect but it’s fantastic.

“I think they all ended up buying something, it was a fun day.

“It’s brilliant to introduce animals to fashion.”
