February 13, 2009 marks the second annual Project Red Dress event in Seattle, WA, and is sure to evoke passion and compassion from all involved. In conjunction with the American Heart Association's annual Go Red! Awareness initiative, Project Red Dress aims to support and honor the organization through this unique event.

The signature event for FGI Seattle offers local up-and-coming fashion design students a chance to show the world what they're made of. The event culminates with a gala fashion show at The Fairmount Olympic Hotel. In addition to the evening's celebrity guest judge, Nick Verreos of Project Runway fame, the fabulous and fun Brooke and Monti, co-hosts of MOViN 92.5's morning talk show program The Ladies Room will be this year's emcees of Project Red Dress.

Faculty from the Art Institute of Seattle, International Academy of Design and Technology, New York Fashion Academy, Seattle Central Community College, and Seattle Pacific University each selected two students from their fashion design programs to participate in this years contest.
