Red Dress Event

Fun, fashion and education abound at annual Red Dress Event

The Meridian Health Red Dress Event celebrates women’s heart health at a fun-filled and health-focused event. This year, the popular event took place at the chic Watermark lounge in Asbury Park.

In partnership with The Heart Truth™ campaign, sponsored by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), Meridian CardioVascular Network’s 2014 event showcased fashions from New York Fashion Week’s Red Dress Collection.

At the event, guests enjoyed front-row view of the dresses from acclaimed designers, including Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan and Michael Kors. Select dresses debuted at NYC Red Dress Collection fashion shows, and were modeled by celebrity supporters such as entertainment host and Asbury Park native Wendy Williams, Hollywood’s most famous “Momager” Kris Jenner, and supermodel and host of Lifetime TV’s Project Runway – Heidi Klum.

At the event, guests also had a chance to learn from Meridian CardioVascular Network experts, including Dawn Calderon, D.O., FACC, chief of Cardiology & director of the Adult Congenital Heart Center at Jersey Shore University Medical Center.
