MIDWEST'S PREMIER FASHION EVENT


February 21-26 2017 at the Omaha Design Center

Be there.

The Midwest's Premier fashion event

Omaha Fashion Week is thrilled to celebrate ten years in 2017! Since our first show, we've grown into the nation's fifth largest fashion event, supporting more independent fashion designers than any other organization in the region.  Omaha Fashion Week is a glamorous red carpet event for a good cause.  We nurture the youngest of fashion designers by providing mentoring, educational opportunities and a professional platform to showcase their work.

Join us for our next season February 21-26!

omaha fashion cup

Breanne Reiss took home the Omaha Fashion Cup in August along with a prize package valued at $25,000 to help launch her career. We loved her patchwork-inspired collection and can't wait to see what she does next!

 

SAC MONEY DRESS

Miss Nebraska, Aleah Peters, rocked the SAC Federal Credit Union Money Dress in August. Designer Alesha Johnson out did herself to make sure the dress was comfortable--it even has pockets!

DESIGNER-FOCUSED

OFW is proud to showcase the work of 55 designers each year. We make participation accessible by charging no fees! Designers are selected into the shows on a merit basis and mentored over six months pre-show.
