(Seattle, WA) Red is the color that evokes passion, fire, and love. Project Red Dress is Seattle’s annual fashion event to inspire, create, challenge, and generate awareness and raise money for the American Heart Association. June 4, 2010 marks the third annual Project Red Dress event in Seattle, Washington that is sure to evoke passion and compassion for everyone involved.

   

Established by Monir Zandghoreishi, local designer and International Academy of Design & Technology (IADT-Seattle) fashion design program chair, is offering 12 local up-and-coming fashion design students a chance to show the world what they’re made of in the form of a fabulous red dress. Taking its cue from TV’s Project Runway, Nancy’s Sewing Basket, will provide each of the twelve contestant’s $200 worth of fabric. IADT will provide the sewing room, with only 16 hours for each student to create their vision in red. The event culminates with a gala fashion show at The Fairmount Olympic Hotel. Judges this year include Nick Verreos, Luly Yang, Nicole Vogel, Rose Dennis, Susan Alveshere. This year’s winning Red Dress will be featured in Luly Yang Couture’s window display and in the pages in Seattle Met and Elise magazines. The lucky winner also earns a design internship with Luly Yang, along with a $3000 scholarship at IADT.

   

This year’s event will be even bigger, shares Monir Zanghoreishi “One being education and the other is the American Heart Association, bringing everyone together for a great cause.” This year’s event also includes an exotic Hawaiian Getaway, raffle compliments of Waikiki Parc and Hawaiian Airlines. And all raffle proceeds will go to the American Heart Association. The show is directed by Eduardo Khawam.
