Staff and residents alike were wowed when 23 Ngaio Marsh staff and part-time supermodels took to the catwalk to model their new Ryman by Annah Stretton uniforms. In fact, resident Shirley Messervy liked the uniforms so much that she'd happily model one herself.
Shirley was one of dozens of admirers and was an instant fan of the new look.
"I really liked the nurses' uniforms, I like the tailored effect - they are just beautiful. I'd definitely wear one myself.
"I also really liked the little jackets - they are feminine and flattering. Just gorgeous.''
She wasn't alone in her admiration. The residents gathered for the fashion show gave staff a huge round of appplause as they strutted their stuff on the catwalk in the atrium.
