A Fashion Show for the Heart

Saturday, March 03, 2012

Every hour, 48 women die from cardiovascular disease and stroke in the United States...unbelievable right? I know it's hard to imagine, but it's important that we are aware and take appropriate steps for good heart health.  Once again the fashion industry proves that it's more than just about what you wear with River Oaks Shopping Center taking steps to bring awareness of this number one killer of men and women in the nation.  Currently 48 red dress silhouette cut-outs are on display throughout the center and they hosted their 3rd Annual Fashion Show benefiting the American Heart Association on Wednesday. 100% of the proceeds from the event went to AHA. I attended the event with fellow bloggers Lynne Gabriel, LeRenda Howard, Monica J & Domnique courtesy of PR Boutique.  Below are some of the pictures I took from the fashion show.  What do you think of the looks?

Jan Carson, Media Personality, was the Emcee
This young lady was definitely the heart of the event.  She stood up and told us her personal story of battling heart disease, by going through numerous surgeries and ending up with her happy ending, married with a wonderful stepson.


Onto the Show!
The fashion show, appropriated named Best of Spring 2012, was split up into 8 different Scenes.  
Scene I - "Rites of Spring"
Scene II - "Tribal Vibe"
Scene III - "Baywatching"
Scene IV - "Let's Get Physical"
Scene V - "Bright Now"
Scene VI - "Red Haute"
Scene VII - "Jewel Box"
Scene VIII - "Love is in the Air"

Below I have shared some of the looks displayed during the show. There were tons of great outfits, in which I will include all the quality pictures in my standard youtube picture slideshow.
