Pistol Pete is proud of Oklahoma State University apparel design students who created red dresses for National Wear Red Day to focus attention on women’s heart health.

Eight Oklahoma State University students in the Design, Housing and Merchandising department of the College of Human Sciences designed a collection of red dresses to raise awareness of the importance of women’s heart health and celebrate heart disease survivors.

The red evening gowns will be on display on National Wear Red Day, February 7, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the a.k.a Gallery in the Paseo Art District in Oklahoma City as part of the First Friday Gallery Walk event. Cindi Shelby, owner of Ruth Meyers in Nichols Hills, will judge the entries and award four prizes totaling $1,000, donated by the Oklahoma Heart Hospital.

Designers Anastasia Duncan, Lauren Page, Ashley Hatchel, Rachel Horvath, Meghan Hope, Hannah Keepers, Bonnie Nabors and Moriah Slavens researched women’s heart health and met with survivors to create the red dresses. The designs incorporated the issue of heart health and the emotions surrounding it in order to create a connection between Wear Red Day, a day that people across America wear red to raise awareness of women’s heart disease, the impact that it has nationwide and the red dresses themselves.

The display of dresses as well as artwork and nontextile projects designed by apparel design and production students will be maintained during the entire month of February in the a.k.a  gallery, 3001 Paseo Drive Oklahoma City.
