Pose at River Landing Part 2

Sunday, June 7th, was the fourth and final event of the Saskatoon Fashion & Design Festival. This was held by the river at River Landing. There was a marketplace with a number of pop-up shops, a fashion show, and some performances from local groups. This is part two, you can read the first part here.

The SFDF presented by ESYXE kicked off Friday, June 5th, with a Deconstructed Runway event at Bottega Trattoria. You can read all about that event by clicking here. The second event was an In Fashion show on Saturday, June 6th, at Midtown Plaza. You can get more information on this event, and see all the looks featured by clicking here. The third event was the VIP Sponsor Reception at the James Hotel. This was tons of fun and you can read about the experience here.

This post was a bit (a lot) delayed just because of the busy season of summer and my photographer got a bit overrun!

Opinion Atelier

Opinion Atelier was another designer that was also at the Deconstructed Runway. I was excited to see more of Eva’s designs because I loved everything that I had already seen. I was definitely not disappointed! I love how so many of the pieces would be transitional and good basics, but still not boring.

Hillberg & Berk

I had been seeing quite a bit of the Hillberg & Berk earrings that are pictured below, but I hadn’t seen much of their other pieces. I love the bold colors that they use in their pieces!

Eleganzia Couture

Eleganzia Couture was the last designer that had also been featured at the Deconstructed Runway. She has a lot of African influence, and you can clearly see that in the patterns. I love all the colors!

T. Akins

This was the first SFDF event that T. Akins showed her designs at, and I’m in love! This are definitely pieces that I would wear. I love the contrast of the brighter and darker colors. The structure of the flower dresses are also super cute.

Prahsik

Prahsik was another designer who hadn’t shown designs at the other events. I love the uniformity between the pieces and the ability to mix and match. The color combination is just so fun!

Final Thoughts

I really enjoyed attending all of these events, I never realized that Saskatchewan had so much talent with fashion design. Each event was unique and showcased the pieces in very different ways. All prices were easily affordable, and I love that they included a free event. It really helps spread the news of all the Saskatchewan talent. I can’t wait to attend the events next year and see what they come up with!
