Canadian celebrities hit the runway in red for The Heart Truth Fashion Show on Thursday March 8.

Canadian celebrities had one colour in mind when they hit the runway last night: red.

Canadian powerhouses like actress Lisa Ray, singer Jully Black and television personality for The Global Morning Show Liza Fromer all donned specially designed red gowns for the annual Heart Truth Fashion Show on Thursday, also celebrating International Women's Day.

The event, which not only highlights some of Canada's most popular and rising female talent, it also raises awareness for heart disease and stoke, the number one killer for women in Canada, according to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Similar to the annual Heart Truth Fashion Show during New York Fashion Week, this show was a kick-off for Toronto Fashion Week, which officially starts on Monday. Runway designers included Canadian favourites like Adrian Wu, Joeffer Caoc, David Dixon and MICALLA -- many of them which will have their spotlight again during Toronto Fashion Week.
