‘Go Red’ 2018
Annual Red Dress Collection Gathers Celebrities, Heart Disease Survivors
Stars took to a New York City runway on Feb. 8 for the American Heart Association’s annual “Go Red for Women” Red Dress Collection, presented by Macy’s at the Hammerstein Ballroom in Manhattan. Go Red is an event in which celebrities and top designers show their commitment to women’s heart health during New York Fashion Week and American Heart Month. Founded in 2004 by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute’s The Heart Truth campaign in partnership with AHA, the event reminds women of the need to protect their heart health and take action in the fight against heart disease and stroke in women.
Alongside celebrities from the stage, screen, fashion and music realms, walking in this year’s show were two heart disease survivors—Macy’s employee Karen A. Hill from Washington D.C., who is living with cardiomyopathy, as well as an AHA national spokeswoman and Go Red For Women “Real Woman” Lilly Rocha from Pasadena, Calif., who survived a heart attack at age 37. This year’s show was hosted by actress Marisa Tomei.
