A Fa s h i o n S h o w b y Fo r t i s H o s p i t a l , Va s h i 9th July 2011, Imperial Banquets, Raghuleela Mall

“FORTIS WALK THE TALK”, a mega fashion show was organized by Fortis Hospital, Vashi at the Imperial Banquet Hall, Raghuleela Mall on 9th July 2011. Sixty Senior citizens who have recently undergone joint replacement surgeries walked the ramp in this grand event in celebration of life and their increased agility post the surgical intervention. Unlike many others, this unique fashion show was not aimed at any glamour quotient or for any fund raising purpose but simply and essentially sought to celebrate the spirit of life of these role models and spread awareness on the curative options of joint problems. A week of careful and meticulous planning went by in preparation for this day. These included coordinating with the participants, event managers, choreographers, dress rehearsals, sending invites to Guests and audiences, liasoning with the media etc. The efforts put in by the team did wonders as the event spelt great success. The show was greatly appreciated by the audience and the public in general, as this gesture was a first of its kind ever undertaken by any hospital. The show was also a heart moving experience for many of the participants who had until recently (before surgery) lost all hope of being able to get back on their feet and enjoy life again. On 9th July, the media arrived by quarter to three in the afternoon at the Imperial Banquets. Dr. Ratika, the host for the event, welcomed the members of the media. The media was briefed on the objective of the event by Dr. Maheshkant, Medical Superintendent and Orthopedic Surgeons, Dr. Rakesh Nair & Dr. Siddarth Yadav. Few of the patients shared their success stories with the media.
