Go Red for Women

27 Mar

The battle against heart disease has never been so beautiful. Fashion week in Los Angeles featured an entire show dedicated to helping raise money and awareness of heart disease in women, the number one disease in American women, and also featured a tribute to the late, great fashion icon Alexander McQueen.

The show was held in downtown L.A. at the newly remodeled baroque-inspired Vibiana. The red carpet was laid out and those in attendance enjoyed specialty drinks such as Guava Rose and also feasted on treats from Pinkberry. As part of the show, guest were able to participate in a silent auction.  The fashion show began with a short live auction featuring many works of art by the great Andy Warhol and lots of sports paraphernalia, ranging from an autographed picture of Mohammed Ali to a Kobe Bryant’s jersey signed by Phil Jackson and other Lakers members including Bryant. All proceeds raised from the auction were given to The American Heart Association.

Ashlan Gorse of E-news hosted the show. Some celebrities in attendance were  former beauty queen Shanna Moakler, singer Kalenna Harper of Diddy-Dirty Money and many others, and Ashlan Gorse herself grace the runway in luxurious red dresses of all lengths.  Designs of LA based designer Alicia Estrada, Stop Staring!, Gypsy 05, and Future Heretics were featured within the show.

The Go Red for Women fashion show brought together art, fashion, and music-all to support one cause. This show indeed brought a beautiful awareness.

    This is an amazing cause. I know personally when I think about diseases and women I think about breast cancer mainly because the support for that cause is shown everywhere. As women we must be sure to know the things that are killing us rapidly and things like this just show how much we need to stick together and fight things like this.
