Description

The phenomenon of combining fashin with a health-related cause, also called health fashion, has taken many forms in the last two decades (Walker, 2010). As early as 1997 the American Heart Association began a campaign to raise awareness for heart health among women (Mosca, 2004), and in 2004 the AHA began the Go Red for Women campaign and chose the red dress as a symbol of the movement.
