Hmmm, Gynecologists fashion show? What does that mean? This is a family blog, I don’t want to think too much about it.
Thankfully, there is a better explanation and something that I generally approve of. Bring together a profession generally not connected with fashion industry and have them walk the ramp!
Fashion is a bit more personal that way! And most importantly, it conveys the message that you don’t have to be anoraxic 20 year old to be a fashion model or just be fashionable.
This 2012 fashion show was not like any other Mumbai fashion show; why? Twenty four leading gynaecologists walked the ramp this 2012 at a fashion show held at JW MARIOTT, wearing exquisite evening wear by ace designer Amy Billimoria with kainaat arora and an 85-year old Dr. RP Soonawalla as the showstoppers.
Amy Billimoria, who specializes in couture and bridal fashion, will make models of many Members of the Mumbai Obstetric and Gunaecologists Society (MOGS), who will walk the ramp, including Dr. Nozer Sheriar, Dr. Nandita Palshetkar, Dr. Reshma Pai, Dr. Hrishikesh Pai, Dr. Nayna Dastoor, Dr. Swarna Goyal, etc amongst others. Amy, who has styled of celebrities for years, got the specialist doctors to don elegant evening wear.
Doctors As Models?
Talking about her new models as doctors , the designer of this 2012 fashion show says, “I have specially designed evening wear shirts and tops that will make all the doctors look very cool. Most of the time, doctors are seen in whites but I have decided to showcase them with the most vibrant of colours. The doctors have also been sporting and have agreed to dress themselves up for the occasion. I am sure that the world of modeling will get new finds.”
Doctors were perfect models for the evening and walked the ramp with aplomb and enjoyed there evening on the ramp in this stunning 2012 fashion show for a change from the OT’s
