Seeing red on St. Paddy's Day

Red displaced green as the color of the day on March 17, with the presentation of a Red fashion show at The Pacific Club.
Joanna Sullivan was honored with a fashion show that took place March 17 at the Pacific Club, with presentations by designers Eric Chandler, Kimberly Williams and Takeo, and jewelry presented by Anna Meng of The Meng Dynasty.
On sunny St. Patrick's Day, red replaced green as the color of the day, as the show also aimed to raise awareness of heart health.
Dubbed the Red fashion show, Takeo also called it his "second wind show" after his 2011 heart attack, open heart surgery and stroke. Although still recovering, he can't help but keep busy, though now he puts as much effort into bringing up the next generation and upcoming talent, as into his own work.
This show marked an introduction to Williams' work, and Emma Wo, Joanna Sullivan's granddaughter, as fashion coordinator.
