The event features a verity of pop up shops of handmade, custom and designer clothing, accessories, and jewelry all for men, women, and children. 


SFDF Runway

“High caliber Event including Fashion, Art, Music, Visual Designs, and Dance”

SFDF will produce an evening of art and culture. Imagine world-class entertainment, imaginative fashion, and exquisite décor in an immersive experience unlike anything you’ve seen. The evening will consist of live music, a runway presentation, dance and art installations to ensnare the senses. 

Experience world-class production, show-stopping visuals, and contemporary fashion held within the ballroom in the “Castle” of the historical, Bessborough Hotel. SFDF will present fall collections with all the luxury expected of an international fashion capital. 

Guests can always expect to be entertained via the unique talents of local designers, boutiques, and visual artists. Each night will be a unique showcase of designers and boutiques from Saskatchewan with a combination of men and women's collections.

Ticketing options range from the front row VIP experience, including a luxury swag bag, to the social atmosphere of general admission and for those who just want a taste of the action, the standing room area is perfect for just that.

Over-dressed does not exist at SFDF Runway! If ever there was an opportunity to let your eccentric, fashionable self out for a night this would be it. We suggest wearing your favourite, fashion forward ensemble or that vintage item that is too special to wear just anywhere. 

The evening will showcase live music, dance and intriguing art installations that will have our guests mesmerized thanks to our collaborative partners The Gaff, Carrie Gates, In The Mix, Dance Inc. and Pro Plus Productions.
