The Heart Truth's groundbreaking partnership with America's fashion industry continued
as fashion leaders—including top designers and celebrity women in music—united on one runway to debut the fourth collection
of red dresses created for The Heart Truth. The Red Dress Collection 2006 Fashion Show took place on the third annual National
Wear Red Day—Friday, February 3, 2006.
Created in 2002 by The Heart Truth, the Red Dress was launched as the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness
at New York’s Fashion Week in February 2003 in partnership with America’s top designers. In February 2004, 2005, and 2006, at
Olympus Fashion Week, the Red Dress symbol came to life on the runway with the Red Dress Collection Fashion Show.
