The Making Of A Fashion Festival: the Evolution of SFDF

Saskatoon has gone through two booms: one in the early 1900s when pioneers moved to the prairies in droves, and a recent renaissance that we’re still enjoying. If you haven’t seen the many articles in national papers and magazines profiling our culinary, art, theatre, and music scenes, you must be a social media hermit only now poking your head out. Fashion, too, has come a long way in the last few years. Gone are the days of Alberta shopping trips or cross-border binges because Saskatoon is now home to big-name stores as well as boutiques that cater to the au courant. But the most exciting revolution in our style scene has been the organization that celebrates and promotes our amazing local designers, and that is the Saskatoon Fashion and Design Festival. This Sunday’s free-to-the-public POSE runway event at River Landing marks SFDF’s fifth anniversary and the milestone deserves some individual congratulations. I mean, who decides to BUILD A FESTIVAL? And how do all the moving parts get coordinated as it grows year after year? Today, we’re taking a peek into the “making of” SFDF, as a few of its key players tell us what makes the city’s premiere fashion festival tick.
