About the SRFI

As a patron of the Canadian fashion industry, Suzanne Rogers has witnessed the strength of emerging design talent at the starting line of their careers. Year after year, as one  designer after another debuted their collections at Ryerson Fashion’s year-end show, Mass Exodus, her main question became “what happens next?”

Presented with a unique opportunity to provide meaningful support and fill a gap between fashion education and practice, the answer to her question became The Suzanne Rogers Fashion Institute. This dynamic fellowship program is set to enrich the next generation through its long-term and unconditional support for emerging designers in the onset of their careers.
