Designer Sarah Prost and heart disease survivor Susan Sanders THE OF FASHION For anyone who has ever wondered what kind of inspiration lies at the heart of a designer’s creation, the American Heart Association and StyleWeek Providence have found the answer. As part of the Go Red StyleWeek Challenge, thirteen New England-based StyleWeek designers have used local heart disease survivors as their muses to craft unique red gowns featuring Swarovski Elements. In a project full of glamour and emotion, these designers rose to the challenge to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience for these truly amazing women. PHOTOS BY TRACY AIGUIER PHOTOGRAPHY.
