Mischa Barton has opened her fashion boutique in Spitalfields, east London, earlier this week, and she now wants to create garments for canines to ensure her own three pooches - Charles Dickens, Ziggy Stardust and Harvey - look as stylish as she does while out and about.
She told The Daily Telegraph newspaper: "I definitely want to do dogwear in the future. Dogwear is really coming into its own and my dogs are so important to me - you want them to look good."
Mishca Barton's new planned venture comes after she recently insisted she has "given up" on men after a string of failed relationships and she would prefer to put all her "love, care and attention" into her three beloved pooches.
The blonde beauty - who has been linked with socialite Brandon Davis and British rocker Luke Pritchard - said: "I've given up men. Sadly, there doesn't seem to be anyone out there for me. My last three boyfriends haven't worked out, so I'm giving guys a rest for a while. I'm putting all my love, care and attention into my three dogs. Don't ask why, but they are a good replacement for men in terms of affection."
