Saskatchewan Fashion Week- Part III

What I wore to SKFWK day 3: Dress [One Teaspoon from Queen V], Booties [Fluevog], Jewelry & handbag all from my moms closet.
Thanks to my mom for the photography of my outfit!

What a blast I had at the final day of SKFWK! The collections were amazing!  During some lines, the models really had fun with the crowd which made it a lot of fun.  Amy, once again, was pulling some sweet jokes on the crowd, always keeping us on the edge of our seats.  It was sure bittersweet leaving that tent at the end of the night.  Can you say SKFWK withdrawal?  I had a lot of fun seeing fellow fashion friends and making new ones.  I can't wait to see what next year has in store for SKFWK!  Here's a look at a few rockin' collections of SKFWK day 3.

Riley Lawson
Riley uses her knowledge of image consulting and fashion trends to create this versatile line. I particularly love how Riley uses eco-dyed silk as well as her combination of various textile textures. Her stunning collection ended up winning her the Fashion Forward Emerging Designer Award. Congrats lovely!!


Sara Armstrong

Sara creates a rocking line with a minimalist approach.  I'm totally into her use of strong structures and bold colour blocking.

Unified Theory

Designer Sara Bayley lets the fabric speak! She uses beautiful natural fabrics including some cozy fur detailing.  I am totally digging her figure flattering looks for day & night!

Thank you again to the wonderful Tyler Yuhasz for his runway shots.

Saskatchewan Fashion Week- Part II

[This picture pretty much sums up just how windy it was...]
What I wore to SKFWK day two: Top from Uforia Muse, My favourite & most comfortable Booties [Fluevog], Skirt [Forever 21], Headband [Aldo Accessories], Watch similar [Michael Kors], Bracelet gifted [Cocoa Jewelry]
Photography of my outfit thanks to my mom.
For some reason I feel like this outfit was Gatsby inspired.  Maybe its the headband?

Welcome to SKFWK Part II!  If you weren't able to catch yesterday's post on part I, you can check it out here.  Out of all the nights, this one was my favourite.  I was not only blown away by the designs of the night, the crowd was having a lot of fun which I think reflected into the overall evening.  I was enjoying Tweeting and Instagraming live so much I ran my phone battery right dry that night.  Note to self, charge prior!  On this night, as well as the other two, host Amy Matysio kept things real fun with her corky personality.  Her sense of humour=hilarious.  I was also SO proud to see some of my best friends present their designs that night.  We had all gone to college together at Lethbridge College studying Fashion Marketing and Design.  Here's a look at some of the fabulous the designs on the runway at SKFWK on Friday Night.

Jaycee Wall

Jaycee's line was fun and flirty. She had the perfect pieces for day and for night.  With a wide range of fabrics and structural detailing this line is wearable for a range of different body types and personalities.

Tia Zelinski

Tia's line blew me away with its structured detailing & stunning fabrics.  The line is so wearable yet so unique.  Her talent for tailored garments really shines through in her Fall '13 line.

Laurie Brown

Watching Laurie's show was as if I was a little kid at a magic show. Not only did she have such funky cutouts in unexpected places, she also had her white gowns bleed another colour on the runway.  Half the show I was so mesmerized by the fabulous designs the other half I was trying to figure out how these dresses were changing colour. Stunning!

Thank you again to Tyler Yuhasz for your beautiful runway shots.  If you haven't checked out his site yet make sure to do so here.

Have a wonderful Wednesday,

Saskatchewan Fashion Week- Part I

What I wore to SKFWK day one: Skirt [Shelly Court], Top from Uforia Muse, Pumps [Aldo], Necklace from The Bay, Bag [borrowed from my mom's closet].
Photography of my outfit thanks to my mom.

I'm very excited to tell you about my fantastic week back home attending Saskatchewan Fashion Week (SKFWK). Because there was so much to this event, I thought it'd be difficult to only bring you one post summing up the entire event.  Instead, I've decided to divide it up into three parts, featuring all three days of fashion shows.

This was the second year of SKFWK.  Last year I was lucky to be involved with the event.  Even though last year I had an idea of what would be going on at the event I was still blown away.  This year surprised me even more.  They had developed the event to a larger scale to hold more fashion goers, which was great as this years crowd was even larger then the last.  It was a lot of fun seeing fellow Sask-ies excited to be involved in the local fashion community.

Every collection featured each evening was extremely unique and I wish I could feature them all. But since I cannot, here are a few collections that caught my eye on day one of SKFWK runway shows.


This eco-fashion label is extremely unique with it's stunning fabrics and structured detailing.  I love the way designer Lisa Wicklund uses a mixture of textures to create a look.


Designer Patricia Glanville uses her knowledge of architecture to add structured detailing to her line.  I love her choice of soft fabrics to create a delicate contrast to the structure.  

Beryl Wong

Beryl brings glam to the runway for the second year in a row!  She uses dramatic patterned fabrics to create such interesting pieces.  I especially love the leather crop top with cutouts.

Nadia Williamson

The lovely Nadia creates one of a kind gowns with interesting detailing such as mid thigh high slits, fabric contrasts & shier lace.  I love the special touches she puts on classic pieces.

Helen Anne Designs

I simply adore how wearable Helen's pieces are!  NEED that lemon dress!  Her pieces are colourful, printed and figure flattering for women's bodies.  

SKFWK was attended by so many amazing & talented people.  I am so thankful to have reunited with many as well as meet some new people too.  One person in particular I was excited to meet was Tyler Yuhasz, a talented photographer in Regina.  I'm grateful he was able to allow me to post his runway shots so that you all could experience some of the fantastic moments.  Be sure to check out his site here.

Hope you're having a fabulous week,
