Metro New York previewed a hospice uniform design competition sponsored by Visiting Nurse Service of New York (VNSNY) in its November 1 edition. A total of 22 junior fashion design students participated in the competition, which required them to engage with the nursing community, incorporate creative design elements that have a holistic and beneficial purpose, and create finished garments that reflect the soothing and therapeutic atmosphere of VNSNY’s new 25-bed Haven Hospice Specialty Unit in Manhattan. The three top designs were selected on Pratt’s Brooklyn Campus on November 1; the winning designer will have their design produced for VNSNY hospice staff members.
