2017 Fashion Show Photos & Video, Celebrating WLS Success

December 1, 2017

Check out the video and photos from this year's ObesityHelp National Conference Fashion Show, sponsored by Celebrate Nutritional Supplements! Year after year, the Fashion Shows are a favorite highlight at the ObesityHelp National Conferences and we're so thankful that Celebrate Nutritional Supplements helped provide a platform for these amazing models to share their success while inspiring others.

32 WLS Models and 5,490 Total Pounds Lost

This year we had 32 amazing bariatric surgery patients walk the catwalk. Together they lost a total of 5,490 pounds and accomplished so many awe-inspiring non-scale victories along the way! The #OH2017 Fashion Show was emceed by Diana M. Vogel, MS, LMFT and the models all wore their favorite fashions of their own style selection. As the models walked down the runway, excitement filled the room as attendees cheered them on.

We also had two guests from the audience that came up and walked the runway before the models came out, we were thrilled to welcome the vivacious Ms. Shell Wilson and the amazing Rocky Alexander to the catwalk! A huge thank you to both of them for their spontaneity and helping us get the OH2017 crowd pumped up and ready to cheer on the Fashion Show models.

Make sure to watch the video below to also catch a glimpse of a fun special surprise guest appearance by Dr. Younan Nowzaradan of My 600lb. Life, he also strutted his stuff on the runway!

OH2017 Fashion Show with Rosie Mercado 

We also had the honor of having plus-size fashion model and VSG surgery post-op, Rosie Mercado, join in and walk the runway too. Not only did she join in on the catwalk but she also spent time backstage giving the group of models some amazing tips.

From her years of experience as a professional plus-sized model, she gave them practical tips about walking and also encouraged them to be fearless and shine on the runway, to be present, and own their success.

"The looks of success are all very different and in difference is the unique beauty and strength of each story. Loved watching all these powerful women and men walk into their own light!" - Rosie Mercado
