Saskatchewan Fashion Week has confirmed Amy Matysio will host Saskatchewan Fashion Week (SFW), May 9-11, 2013, at City Square plaza, in Regina, SK. Matysio is a Saskatchewan born, award winning actor, creator, and producer, and was recently named a Saskatchewan Future 40, among three other SFW contributors. Her feature credits include: playing opposite Ryan Reynolds and Anna Farris in New Line Cinema’s Just Friends, Stephen King’s Dolan’s Cadillac, Jennifer Lynch’s Chained with Vincent D’Onofrio, and the family comedy Vampire Dog.
“This is a remarkable time for fashion in the province and I’m thrilled to have been asked to contribute to Saskatchewan Fashion Week,” said Matysio. “In this growing, creative industry, I look forward to working with the SFW team on showcasing the outstanding designers and all the contributors, artists, businesses & sponsors, who have leapt in to support this exciting opportunity.”
SFW is a non-profit, annual, provincial celebration of Saskatchewan’s thriving fashion and creative design industries. It gives both established and emerging professionals the exclusive opportunity to showcase their design, technical, and entrepreneurial skills and establish connections with Saskatchewan networks that foster collaboration and entrepreneurship. The goal of SFW is to elevate the profiles of fashion and creative design industry professionals in Saskatchewan as significant contributors to the national industries.
“Amy is a champion for Saskatchewan’s fashion and creative design industries. She has the rare ability to entertain a captive audience with her improvisational skills,” said Candyce Fiessel, Co-Creator and Sponsorship Director for SFW. SFW will be a runway exhibition of fashion and custom motion design with twenty-eight emerging and established designers from British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan who will show original Fall/Winter 2013 collections. Hair styling and makeup artistry will be created by Saskatchewan’s elite hair stylists and makeup artists. Interactive art instillations and music performances will entertain spectators. SFW tickets can be purchased from saskfahionweek.com and Cornwall Centre Guest Services and range in price from $65 to $250.
SFW proudly recognizes the Regina Hotel Association as a major funding partner.
