The Suzanne Rogers Fashion Institute:
The Suzanne Rogers Fashion Institute (SRFI) fellowship program is unique in the Canadian fashion landscape attracting potential Fellows earlier in their academic and fashion careers. Ryerson University fashion design undergraduates from second, third and fourth year, along with recent graduates are eligible to undergo the competitive selection process to become a Fellow at the SRFI.
Since its launch in November 2016, the SRFI strives to educate, support, promote and advocate for new talent at Ryerson University. With these goals at the cornerstone of the SRFI, the Institute will foster and empower the next generation to pursue their greatest ambitions.
Stephanie Moscall-Varey is a contemporary Canadian women’s wear designer who is fascinated by shape and construction. She is inspired by the natural world around her and strives to interpret aspects of nature into fabric form. During her studies at Ryerson University, she had the honor to intern with Jeremy Laing and travelled alongside to New York Fashion Week for his SP14 collection. Throughout the duration of her schooling she had the honor of working closely with Ryerson’s resident designer Wayne Clark.
Stephanie’s graduating collection was selected by Jeanne Beker to close the Ryerson University-curated Mass Exodus 2015 grad fashion show. Stemming from the success of her graduating collection, she was selected to participate in the Italian Contemporary Film Festival Design Competition, where she was awarded 1st prize by the festivals judges and honorable designer Sid Neigum. Stephanie is grateful to have been featured in numerous publications such as FASHION Magazine, S/ and S/ Volume Magazine, Dolce Magazine, Applied Arts Magazine, Remark Magazine, RAD Mag and Flare Magazine Online. Stephanie is currently an inaugural fellow of The Suzanne Rogers Fashion Institute.
