Celebrities, television and radio personalities, designers, and models united on Friday, October 12th to spread awareness about heart diseases at the “Miami Red Dress Fashion Show” during Funkshion’s Fall Fashion Week Miami Beach. The annual event, which celebrates fashion, philanthropy and culture all in the name of heart health, was held at Collins Park in Miami Beach. The program began with a warm welcome from Jonathan Babicka, co-founder of MOMM Organization and owner of Primp Salon & Hair Extension Boutique. Susan Stipcianos from The Dream Team Agency served as the Master of Ceremonies.

The Dream Team Agency helped to secure the models who participated in the fashion show. Junior & Hatter Salon donated their hair styling services and MakeUp by Aileen donated their makeup services for the cause. The red dresses were provided by the designers listed below and Rent the Runway. Frenchy Stars LLC/Crystal Custom Eyewear provided custom eyewear for guests. After the fashion show, guests enjoyed a post-show party at Shore Club, which helped launch Miami PULSE, a group of local young professionals working to build a strong beat of commitment to heart health in the next generation of community leaders.
