Omaha Fashion Week wouldn't be the same without the amazing hair stylists and makeup artists who help bring the full vision of our designers to life. A huge and heartfelt thank you to the OFW Beauty Alliance for providing such a talented and hard working team to make our 10 Year Anniversary Showcase a success!

We think the Beauty Alliance's Director, Somer Krueger, said it best:

"As a fashion designer is thinking of the collection of work that they are creating for the season, they dream and imagine what each piece will look like on the models walking the runway. Today I saw MY COLLECTION!

This has been a dream come true to watch hair stylists and make up artists work with students to create beauty for the fashion designers of Omaha Fashion Week. I have worked for months on spreadsheets, sending emails, creating Facebook posts, making phone calls, learning everything I can about fashion week and going to schools to share the vision of Omaha’s Beauty Alliance.

Today was a day that I got to see the fabric of all those hours. I was able to see “my collection” and vision for beauty professionals to Do Something Beautiful - together. The heart of my collection is to mentor and inspire. The OFW Beauty Alliance has made this a reality. Omaha Fashion week has given me a runway to show how incredible my industry and beauty professionals are.

The intricate complex combination of your talent is going to shine for the world to see this fashion week! Thank you for being a part of this. I BELIEVE we can do beautiful things together!"
