Well said by Dr Jessy, where these women doctors will turn into showstoppers of the fashion show. They will dazzle in their glittering outfits and walk the ramp confidently and élan, leaving the audience in awe of their hidden talents, exhibited for the first time by professional doctors. This will surely be a welcome break for all these women doctors who toil day and night in hospitals/clinics taking care of the suffering humanity, and since they are adapted to work behind the scenes. As they are pro at dressing up in a few minutes when they face many emergency cases, therefore, they must be updated with the latest fashion trends. But, being in the limelight is not something they are used to, but thanks to the efforts and trust of the organizers for giving this once-in-a-lifetime unique opportunity. Surely, it will be an evening well spent witnessing these budding fashion divas walk the ramp!
