Considering that we only recently got rid of all the snow and ice from the delightful winter of 2013-14, no one’s likely in the mood to think ahead to the fall/winter of 2014-15. But if you attend Saskatchewan Fashion Week which runs May 8-10 in Regina you will get a taste of what’s to come. That’s because the 22 fashion designers who are participating in this annual festival will be showcasing their fall and winter lines.

Saskatchewan Fashion Week debuted in 2012, and this year there’s been a bit of a shake-up. Instead of using a large tent on City Square Plaza to host the runway shows and after parties, organizers have opted for the sound stage at the corner of Broad and College. Here’s a link to a Street Wear column in the May 1 issue of Prairie Dog where SFW marketing coordinator Jill Sveinson talks about the change and what people can expect at this year’s festival.

Saskatchewan-born actor Amy Matysio will host the runway shows again, and in addition to the 22 designers you’ll also be able to see some of the province’s top hair stylists, make-up artists, models and more in action. You can find more about Saskatchewan Fashion Week here.
