WE’RE HERE TO SUPPORT THE FASHION SECTOR

HOW IT WORKS

 

Saskatchewan Fashion Association is the non-profit, member-based organization that represents, promotes and develops the commercial fashion industry of Saskatchewan. We support all industry contributors and do all we can to assist the sector in getting where they’d like to go.

We offer our members a fashion sector directory, career consultations, workshops, marketing and export assistance, networking opportunities and much more. We are a source of information and resources for both the public and the fashion sector. If you have questions about the community in Saskatchewan, we can help.

Our members include fashion designers, photographers, models, hairstylists, makeup artists, and all other industry contributors. We invite you to join us!

The first SFA workshop series will launch January 2020.

Workshops will be recorded and distributed for members that are unable to travel to larger centres.

#9 RETAIL INITIATIVE

We are developing retail partnerships between boutiques and shops in Regina, Saskatoon, Prince Albert, and beyond to provide the opportunity for designers to be featured around the province. This will also encourage foot traffic and online conversation.

Do you own a store front or retail space? We would love to talk to you! Give us a ring!


SIGN-UP!

The creation of the Saskatchewan Fashion Association is the first step towards a prosperous fashion sector in our province. As we generate greater awareness, provide business education, and continue presenting unique opportunities to further the progression of the sector, our industry members will benefit directly.

As a non-profit organization we are owned by our membership base. As a member of the SFA you will have a one voting right to elect board members at our annual general meeting held in the spring.

We know firsthand the power of inspiring our community and youth to follow their creative ambitions, and this organization will be the next step in the evolution of the Saskatchewan fashion sector. We look forward to working with our members and elevating the fashion industry within Saskatchewan.
