Parsons AAS' Fashion Program to be held at Sheila Johnson Design Center

Deep-Vein Thrombosis (DVT) awareness comes to the forefront tonight at the Parsons The New School for Design's annual AAS Line Debut.

As part of its mission to continue raising public knowledge of this serious and potentially life-threatening condition, the Coalition to Prevent DVT has partnered with Parsons, one of the world's leading institutions for design education, to create a new symbol for DVT awareness.

Leg wear designed by select Parsons' AAS Fashion Studies students will be unveiled on the runway this evening in conjunction with the school's AAS Line Debut, an exhibition that showcases more than 40 innovative looks by emerging designers from this leading professional fashion degree program.

The leg wear will provide the inspiration for a new DVT awareness symbol. Based on the Coalition's DVT Awareness by Design program, leg wear was selected as the design medium for DVT awareness because DVT is a blood clot that most often forms in the leg, then may migrate to the lung where it can
cause pulmonary embolism (PE).

"Parsons' participation in the DVT awareness campaign and the school's stellar reputation in the design world will help us engage the public and continue to raise awareness of this under-recognized yet serious condition," said Melanie Bloom, Coalition to Prevent DVT National Patient Spokesperson.

Bloom became an outspoken advocate for DVT awareness after her husband, NBC Correspondent David Bloom, died of complications from DVT while covering the war in Iraq.

Each year up to two million people in the United States suffer from DVT, and approximately 300,000 die from its potentially fatal complication, pulmonary embolism (PE).

In fact, DVT complications kill more American seach year than breast cancer and AIDS combined. DVT-related PE is the most common cause of preventable hospital death. Certain individuals may be at increased risk for developing DVT, but it can occur in almost anyone.

It was one of the many lives lost to DVT that led to the Coalition's partnership with Parsons. After noted Parsons faculty member and alumna Stacie Nipps died of DVT-related PE in 2004, the school named an award in her honor and invited Melanie Bloom to present it in 2007.
