Local notables including KARE 11’s Rena Sarigianopoulos will walk the runway in dresses created by Minnesota-based fashion designers for the Red Dress Collection on Feb. 17 at the Graves 601 Hotel. The fashion show is a fundraiser for the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women program, which is designed to raise awareness of heart disease, the number one killer of women. The University of Minnesota Physicians Heart at Fairview sponsors the show, now in its second year. It’s a cause that hits close to home for Sarigianopoulos, whose mother survived triple bypass surgery four years ago. The weekend co-anchor and new co-host of the 96.3 K-Twin morning show will model a hand-beaded dress by designer Caroline Hayden. Sarigianopoulos will be joined on the runway by Amelia Santaniello, Alix Kendall, Janel Klein, and our own style editor, Allison Kaplan, among others. Tickets cost $25 to $100. reddressmn.com
