November 23, 2020

Ryerson University’s Suzanne Rogers Fashion Institute (SRFI) has renewed a five-year fellowship program following a second $1M donation from the Edward and Suzanne Rogers Foundation. The SRFI fosters fashion design talent through bridging the “transition between fashion education and practice.” Students in the program benefit from mentorship, industry guidance, and financial assistance. “Designers are gifted with the ability to uplift the human spirit through their creativity, and we urge them to adapt and remain vigilant through these trying times,” said SRFI director Robert Ott.
