The Heart Truth created and introduced the Red Dress as the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness in 2002 to deliver an urgent wake-up call to American women. The Red Dress® reminds and inspires women to take action to protect their heart health. Each February since its launch, the Red Dress symbol has come to life on the runway with the support of the fashion industry and celebrity models at The Heart Truth’s Red Dress Collection Fashion Show.
This year, the organzation marks a decade of commitment to women’s heart health. On Wednesday, February 6, The Heart Truth will unveil its 11th collection of Red Dresses to kick off New York Fashion Week. Several notable celebrities such as Chaka Khan, Christie Brinkley, Aisha Tyler, LaLa Anthony and Rose McGowan supported the cause by working the catwalk in last season’s show.
Media personalities and fashion designers will generously join The Heart Truth to present the Red Dress Collection 2013.
As a head start, February 1st marks National Wear Red Day. The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, the Office on Women’s Health, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and many other groups and organizations celebrate the day each year to raise awareness that heart disease is the #1 killer of women and is largely preventable.
See you guys at the runway show!
