When nurse Robyn Kerr was asked to be a supermodel at the Yvette Williams fashion extravaganza she leapt at the challenge and thought, "Why not? I've never done anything like this before - it's very exciting!"
Robyn donned her Ryman by Annah Stretton dress and rocketed down the purple, spot-lit, basement catwalk, to the sound of the audience singing a resident-written rendition of "You are my Sunshine."
Village Manager Gail Miller said it was "an awesome day and a great atmosphere." One of her staff declared it was one of the best events they had ever had in the village.
Activities coordinator Nora Tjandrawidjaja and caregiver Anthea Gerwatzki really enjoyed the chance to show off their new uniforms. Nora said she was "very proud of it and thought the residents would like the brighter colours."
Hospital resident Frances Jacobs thought the uniforms were "beautiful and all so individual. "They've done them proud," she said, "Today is like a carnival."
