"The City of Toronto has a goal of being the best place globally to start
a business - events like Startup Fashion Week help connect Toronto's
fashion and tech entrepreneurs, providing opportunities to network,
showcase and learn from industry professionals."
Manager of Entrepreneurship Service Economic Development and Culture, City of Toronto.
Startup Fashion Week could not be possible without the passion and devotion from our Production team. These individuals spend countless volunteer hours managing a certain portfolio to ensure the SFW event are professional and memorable. We love bringing on new talent and have seen our team grow over the years. These individuals are essentially making SFW one of Canada's most influential fashion weeks to date!

Over the years we have worked with many professional photographers who have repeatedly committed their time and talent to the SFW community. These individuals often go above and beyond photo shoots and event coverage; they truly provide an authentic community building experience. We are so grateful for their contributions and highly recommend their creative services.
