The "blanket that has sleeves" has made its runway debut at Fashion Week. Marching down the catwalk was a dog in a Snuggie, accompanied by a model also draped in one. This fashion item most often seen in infomercials looks a lot like a giant sleeping bag, and now it comes in tie-dye, camouflage and "luxury microplush."

RENEE MONTAGNE, host:

And now for some couture for the couch. Our last word in business today is the snuggie. That's right, the blanket that has sleeves made its runway debut at Fashion Week. Marching down the catwalk was a dog in a snuggie accompanied by a model also draped in one. This fashion item, most often seen in infomercials, looks a lot like a giant sleeping bag and now it comes in tie-dye, camouflage and luxury microplush.

(Soundbite of song)
