Forget Fashion Week! Dogs of all shapes and sizes show off their VERY stylish outfits as they arrive for the second day of Crufts 2018

  • Dogs donned printed coats and colourful headscarves as they arrived for the second day of Crufts 2018
  • Proud owners showed off their pampered pooches as they arrived at the NEC in Birmingham for the show
  • The four-day competition will culminated in the highly-anticipated Best In Show competition on Sunday night 

Fashion month might have come to an end but the show has only just started at Crufts 2018.  

Dogs of all shapes and sizes were spotted showing off some very stylish looks as they arrived for day two of the competition at the NEC Birmingham on Friday. 

Proud owners paraded their pampered pooches on their way into the arena, dressing them in animal print jackets and fetching headscarves.

While some of the eye-catching ensembles were designed to protect the competitors' coats from the damp weather, others were simply there to make a statement. 

This year some 160,000 visitors are expected to attend the four-day event, with breeders and dogs travelling from around the world in the hope of taking home a prize. 

Today's events include the Terrier and Hound judging and presentation. The finale, the Best In Show presentation, will take place on Sunday night.
