(Windsor, Ontario) - St. Clair College Fashion Design Technician students were caught in a wonderful “act from the heart” with the creation and donation of 11 MRI designer hospital gowns that were donated to Windsor Regional Hospital.

Elaine Chatwood, Faculty and program co-ordinator was thrilled with the opportunity to fill a need at Windsor Regional. “Every year we do a project to give back to the community, so this year we met with the hospital to see what was needed for hospital gowns,” Chatwood said. “The hospital interviewed younger patients who didn’t like putting on a regular hospital gown and that provided us with the inspiration to design and create something a little different and a little bit more fun and colourful.”

The St. Clair College Fashion Design students are extremely excited to donate their designer hospital gowns. Fabrics were donated by TÉLIO Fabrics from Montreal, students and instructors. Every year the St. Clair College Fashion Design program works on a different project in where the students design and construct garments to be donated.

Previous projects included pajama’s for a local men’s shelter, 100 dresses for Africa and super hero capes for sick kids.
