Fashion Design Students Aid MRI Patients

Windsor, ON.  St. Clair College Fashion Design students were encouraged to consider a project as a result of one of their teachers currently attending the hospital as a cancer patient.

A group of students will present designed hospital gowns for MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) patients.

Date:              Tuesday, May 30, 2017
Time:              9:30 a.m.
Location:       Met Campus - Windsor Regional Hospital - 1995 Lens Avenue
                        First Floor East Presentation Area

The St. Clair College students worked in teams to design and produce the 10 special hospital gowns for patients requiring an MRI.

“This was a great experience for the students as they were able to follow a process from design through to production,” stated Elaine Chatwood, Coordinator, Fashion & Design Technician Program at St. Clair College.  Elaine went on to say, “It shows that fashion design is more than dresses and models, it has many applications, including the medical field.”

Chatwood hopes this initiative may become an annual project for the St. Clair College students.
