Cão Estilo Couture by SR
Canine Couture

Established 2017

Welcome to Cão Estilo Couture by SR! We're a small, handcrafted canine clothing business with a big heart for furry friends and love for fashion. Our story began in 2017, all the way back in Luanda, Angola.

After noticing our beloved dog Nina just wouldn't fit comfortably in most store-bought clothes and being surrounded with such vibrant colours and patterns of African prints, I decided to take matters into my own hands. With my husband's unwavering support, I embarked on a journey of self-discovery, teaching myself how to sew and operate a sewing machine. The result? Vibrant African print dog clothes that were both comfortable, fashionable and unique!

In 2019, we started a new adventure in Dubai. This thriving city brought fresh inspiration and possibilities , and I expanded our collection with a range of new fabrics and new designs. Also In 2019, I was awarded Best Fashion Designer For Pets at Dubai Pet Fest with our Susan, Sugar & Honey Collection. This line was made out of high-quality plaid, inspired by Queen Elizabeth II Royal Corgis and this Collection became really well-known and successful around the city doggistas.

We are more and more conscious when choosing fabrics so we've been using mostly environmentally friendly textiles like natural cotton and organic cotton sateen printed with eco-friendly OEKO-TEX ®️ certified inks, as the results and benefits of using these textiles are tremendous and can make a huge difference to our Planet, even just small a business like mine. Not to mention the quality of the textiles themselves.

Cão Estilo Couture by SR is a small family business based on high quality and unique Canine Couture. Every single piece you see here is meticulously crafted by me, from scratch, using my awesome Singer®️ Sewing Machine and  Singer®️ Serger or my hands whenever hand stitching is needed. This means not only high quality, attention and detail to the finishing of the piece guaranteed, but also to allow your canine friend to be one of only a few worldwide to own any of Cão Estilo Couture by SR items, as I am a one-woman show. Our goal is to provide a full wardrobe of possibilities, from playful everyday wear to pieces that are as close to haute couture as your doggista can strut!


In 2021, I had to take a break due to a necessary surgery. My recovery journey took longer than expected, but I'm thrilled to be back and creating again, stronger and more passionate than ever before. 

That's why we're thrilled to introduce a new chapter in our story – matching dog mom and dog clothes! Now, you and your furry companion can strut your stuff in coordinated style. We're so grateful for your support and can't wait to see your pups rocking our latest designs.
