For the second year in a row, the American Heart Association is pleased to partner with Funkshion: Fashion Week Miami to produce the annual Red Dress Fashion Show. Across the country, the Red Dress has become the symbol for Go Red For Women, the American Heart Association movement that educates women about heart disease – currently the #1 killer of all women – and empowers them to take charge of their heart health. The Red Dress Fashion Show is presented by the American Heart Association and Piaget and will be hosted by Motives® by Loren Ridinger. Along with red dresses from designers such as Carolina Herrera, Michael Kors, Nicole Miller, Richie Rich and Badgley Mishka, the show will also feature a red swimwear line by Jantzen. A special appearance will be made by designers Nicole Miller and, for the second year in a row, Richie Rich. All funds raised as a result of the show will benefit Go Red For Women community programs and fund research in the field of cardiology.
