The Red Dress Collection℠ 2007 Fashion Show was presented by Johnson & Johnson and affiliated companies, with national sponsors Celestial Seasonings and Swarovski, media partner Lifetime, and make-up partner Bobbi Brown.

Designed to warn women of their #1 health threat, 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 women of the need to protect their heart health and inspires them to take action. Each February since its launch, the Red Dress symbol has come to life on the runway on National Wear Red Day with the support of the fashion industry and celebrity models at the Red Dress Collection Fashion Show.
