When she came to Woodbury University more than three years ago, Jocelyn Ramirez planned to study architecture. But finding out how structured it was, Ramirez felt her creativity would be stifled and switched to fashion. Now in her senior year at the Burbank campus, Ramirez has a sense of the satisfaction she longed for. "I think I can be more creative and express myself through fashion," she said. "I like to make people feel good about themselves and enjoy seeing their expression when they put on clothing that makes them feel special."

Nine doctors consented to model men's wear by Sy Devore during the fashion show.
