Red Dress Collection Exhibited at the State Capitol

Each February The Red Dress Collection uses fashion to raising awareness of heart disease as the leading killer of women. Students from the UC Davis Department of Design are at the forefront of this awareness campaign. 

As part of a unique partnership between the UC Davis Women’s Cardiovascular Medicine Program and Design, fashion design students create a collection of red dresses to raise awareness that heart disease is the leading cause of death among women. Each year in February, new designs are unveiled at the UC Davis Women’s Heart Care Education and Awareness Forum, which is held in Sacramento during National Heart Month. 

Curated by Adele Zhang, lecturer and JoAnn C. Stabb Design Collection curator, this year’s collection was exhibited at the State Capitol. Zhang created the partnership between the UC Davis Medical Center and Design in 2010.  

The UC Davis Department of Internal Medicine profiles this year’s Collection and its mission.
