Launched in 2012 by three millennial go-getters, Saskatchewan Fashion Week (SFW) kick-started momentum for an entire industry. Nightly catwalk shows feature collections by homegrown stylists and designers, while guests socialize and shop at the after-parties and trunk shows. e budding career of Chelsea Petterson, SFW co-founder, stylist and co-owner of two Regina stores, has evolved alongside the event. Drawing from rock and roll culture, Petterson's key wardrobe pieces include dark skinny jeans, new boots each season and a strong leather jacket. "Being able to boost people's confidence through styling," she says, "is an empowering feeling." SFW also encourages those pursuing creative careers to stay and contribute to the province's growth. Take revered Regina-based designer and fashion mentor Dean Renwick. "Designers in major centres would die for what I have here," says Renwick, referring to how lucky he is to live in Saskatchewan. ough he enjoys SFW's three nights of glitz and glam, he finds the increased exposure especially valuable. With garments highly sought after locally and abroad, Renwick's signature style favours "clean and classic pieces with slight twists, pure lines and fit." He works from a bright colour palate and opts for natural, easy-to-drape fabrics like silk and wool. saskfashionweek.com W Saskatchewan Fashion Week runs May 7-9, 2015, at the Canada Saskatchewan Production Studios, Regina.
