Miami fashion designer Rene Ruiz made a stop at Jackson Memorial Hospital to showcase his latest designs.
Rene decided to refashion the standard hospital gown in the transplant unit, creating a more efficient and user-friendly garment for patients and medical staff.
Transplant patients can spend a lot of time In the hospital, so an easy-to-wear and modest gown is appreciated.
"I designed these hospital gowns for patients like you and hopefully it will be better and more comfortable," Rene told a patient.

He worked on the new gowns for over six months, pouring over every detail, including the colors.
"I wanted to make sure that they represented Jackson Hospital and that's why I used the marine blue as a piping, as a fashion design detail, and also I designed the red heart which is something that I always use and is part of my signature," he said.
Rene donated his services and Jackson is paying Goodwill to make the gowns. Each costs $47 and so far they've bought over 4,260 gowns.
