These designer hospital gowns aren't just amazing. They inspire 'empowerment' in teens.

WATCH | When a charity teamed up with designers to create fashionable hospital gowns for teens, one child "saw empowerment in teenagers in a place where they don't have any."

Starlight Children's Foundation Canada launched its Ward+Robes initiative this year.

Ward + Robes: Hospital gowns for teens

The charity provides designers with a hospital-gown template and other instructions. Using machine-washable fabrics and accounting for patients’ comfort and mobility, designers do the rest.

Izzy Camilleri says her Ward+Robes work "means so much more" than designing for celebs.

She should know. She created a signature look for Meryl Streep in "The Devil Wears Prada."

Camo, goth and preppy gowns are just a few of the styles in play.

This gown lets me be who I am outside the hospital.
