StyleWeek Northeast: Red on the Runway

Designers partnered with the American Heart Association for a benefit again this year.


Published:

StyleWeek Northeast teamed up again with the American Heart Association for a benefit in honor of people who have been affected by heart disease. This time, designers created ensembles for doctors, a nurse, a firefighter, several people who lost family members to heart disease or experienced it themselves, and StyleWeek founder Rosanna Ortiz Sinel's father, a heart attack survivor.

Judges were tasked with deciding the winning design:

The winner? Designer Kara Wickman. She dressed Mary Velardo, who lost her husband to a sudden heart attack in 2009, in a patterned corset and skirt. 

The other models were:

Lisa Connolly

Dr. Sara Ford

Tara Wood

Dr. Michael Gilson

Louise Dinsmore

Jill Andy

Mike Mernick

Paul Brooks

Martin Ortiz

StyleWeek continues through Saturday night at the Providence Biltmore.
