Yesterday brought 279 model hopefuls to Von Maur Court in Westroads Mall....a record for Omaha Fashion Week. This was our biggest and most diverse Model Call to date. We are so thrilled at the turnout and can't wait to see so many new faces on the runway next month at Omaha Fashion Week Feb 21-26, 2017 at Omaha Design Center.
Currently our designers are browsing the hundreds of fabulous photos and videos taken at Model Call to find the right models for their nearly-complete collections. Once they have selected, Omaha Fashion Week will be in touch with all models who were cast to let them know.
Wondering more specifics on the requirements for models? Check out the Model Expectations and Time Commitment Info Sheet here.
When and how do I find out if I am cast? You will be notified by the end of January if you have been cast. If you are not cast, you will not be notified. Please note-there are often last minute changes, so you may receive an email later than the end of January.
What happens if I don't get cast? We want to see you again in June! Each season of Omaha Fashion Week brings new designers and new collection ideas that require varying types of models. Don't get discouraged. Keep an eye on Omaha Fashion Week Facebook and Instagram to stay up to date on our next casting call.
