Last night we kicked off Omaha Fashion Week of August 2015 with our Bridal, Children’s, and Sister Cities Showcase. We had a great evening of food, cocktails, art, and of course, fashion!

Besides our top-notch designers, we also had some great retailers selling merchandise including Pretty in Patina, Borsheims, Gordmans, and Design Parliament. Artists, Audi Helkuik and Matt Babe were also spotted at the fashion tent with their awe-inspiring artwork. Audi is our official Omaha Fashion Week sketch artist and Matt is OFW’s resident street artist.

And of course, here’s a quick recap of our designers from the night:
