Where do I go?

We at Omaha Fashion Week are always trying to make the experience better and better each season. So in the spirit of making everyone as comfy as we can, we are moving some things around.

Styling-

  • Models will be assigned an appointment to get hair and makeup done.

  • This season we are moving hair and makeup to the Empire Room Omaha.

    • 200 So. 31st Ave, Suite 4107

  • To see a map of the location, go here!

  • Located at Midtown Crossing, it looks out over Turner Park. It is situated between Thirst-Tea and Cantina Laredo.

  • There is plenty of parking for everyone and we will pay for your parking if you park in the garage.

  • When models are done, they are welcome to go directly to the Omaha Design Center. They should check in with their designer, but otherwise we just expect all models and designers to be checked in backstage by 7pm.

When you arrive at the Omaha Design Center-

Models and Designers must enter through the backstage entrance.

  • This is at the loading dock on 16th across from Izard Street. Here is what it looks like from the street.

  • There will be a check in table just inside the door. If someone’s name is not on the backstage list, they will have to talk to Buf.

  • Remember- do not bring valuables! Don’t leave them in your car and don’t bring them backstage!

  • We want to keep it as clutter free as possible backstage so only bring what is necessary.

Hair and makeup artists -you will be issued a ticket. You will go through the front doors with the other attendees (unless instructed otherwise)

When should I be there?

  • Day of show call times for hair and makeup will be broken into two time slots, 3:30 and 5.

  • Be backstage no later than 7pm. There should be ample time for models and designers to be checked in backstage by then.

Rack Check August 4th!
