Fall/Winter 2012 New York Fashion Week kicks off this week and with that comes the annual Heart Truth Red Dress Collection 2012 show.
The Red Dress Collection is part of The Heart Truth’s campaign to raise awareness for Women’s heart health since 2002. This year celebrities like Olympic Gold Medalist Michael Phelps, and designers Diane Von Furstenberg and Chris March were all sitting front row as 17 fashionable women walked the runway to show support for The Heart Truth’s message of heart health. The Heart Truth celebrates the symbol of the Red Dress with the 10th collection of dresses at the iconic Hammerstein Ballroom. The Red Dress started in 2002 and now two-thirds of women say that the Red Dress makes them want to learn more about heart disease.
