Diane Guerrero, Lucy Lawless (Xena: The Warrior Princess), Juliette Lewis and up to fifteen celebrities paraded yesterday at the Red Dess Collection show during New York Fashion Week. Singers, actresses and television stars wore red dresses from different designers such as Marchesa, Herve Leger or Emilio Sosa.
The parade, sponsored by Macy's, is powered by the Go Red For Women initiative, which is part of the American Heart Association, and was created to highlight the lack of information on how cardiovascular disease affects the female population.
1 in 3 women in the United States dies from a heart problem. A silent killer who claims more lives than all forms of cancer combined. But 80% of these cases could have been avoided with a healthy lifestyle, as Colombian actress Diane Guerrero told us, during the test of her dress, designed by the Argentine Gustavo Cadile.
This year, for the first time, in addition to the famous parades, we saw two cardiovascular disease survivors on the catwalk. Two Macy's employees selected by the famous department store, which has reaffirmed its commitment to women's health. Odilia Cristabel Flores of New York and Nicole Hardy of Scarborough, Maine collaborated on a cause they know first hand. And is that fashion, among other things, can be a powerful weapon of awareness
