The Red Dress® is the national symbol for raising awareness of heart disease as the leading killer of women. Cardiovascular disease kills a woman every minute, more than all cancers combined, yet is largely preventable through the adoption of healthy lifestyles.
In 2010, the Department of Design entered into a unique partnership with the UC Davis Women’s Cardiovascular Medicine Program to campaign for women’s heart health awareness. This exhibition showcases 18 red dresses from the UC Davis Red Dress Collection created by design students.
