New York Fashion Week Red Dress Collection 2014
The Heart Truth® and the American Heart Association’s (AHA’s) Go Red For Women® movement—both known for the iconic red dress that symbolizes the fight against women’s heart disease—teamed up on February 6, 2014, to showcase the Go Red For Women /The Heart Truth Red Dress Collection fashion show. The show, which featured more than 20 celebrities walking the runway in exclusive red dresses designed by America’s most elite designers, brought inspirational stories of women who continue their battle against heart disease.
The centerpiece of The Heart Truth is the Red Dress℠, which was introduced as the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness in 2002 by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI). The Red Dress® reminds women of the need to protect their heart health and inspires them to take action. The Heart Truth thanks the 94 designers and 214 celebrities who have contributed their talents and support to Red Dress Collection fashion shows year after year.
The Red Dress Collection 2014 came to life through a partnership between the NHLBI and the AHA and was presented by Macy’s, Go Red For Women’s founding national sponsor, and SUBWAY® Restaurants, participating in the show for the fourth year, with support from Hearts On Fire diamonds.
