Just as you can practice heart opening in your thoughts and emotions, you can also experience opening the heart space in your physical body. This notion was the inspiration behind Lizzie’s design for the 2016 Red Dress Fashion show, a show that supports the Go Red for Women cause to end heart disease and stroke. Paired with fitness icon, Stacie Clark, Lizzie represented MAI Movement to create a statement cocktail dress inspired by the heart.


Lizzie was inspired by the physical motion and benefits of heart opener exercises in yoga. Her designs explored elements of detail around the chest and spine, ultimately with the intention of creating a beautiful statement of joy and hope to support this amazing cause.
