WHO: 70 Participants in Omaha Fashion Camp, presented by Omaha Fashion Week and Develop Model Management.

WHAT: Fashion Campers present their camp projects on the runway today for parents, press and members of the public.  Fashion Camp started on Monday, teaching kids about careers in the fashion industry along with key skills including sketching, pattern making, sewing, modeling and photography. Goodwill provided a "pop up shop" for kids to select fabrics and accessories to style their garments.  Camp culminates in a runway show where students' projects will be reviewed, with the top projects being selected for platform displays during Omaha Fashion Week August 17-22.

WHY:  The fashion industry is competitive!  Kids need to start early in fostering their understanding and skills in this industry.  Fashion camp is a great way for boys and girls to exercise their math, science, spacial awareness and creative talents.  The projects will be reviewed by OFW Producers, Nick and Brook Hudson.  The top projects will be shown on platforms during the next season of Omaha Fashion Week, August 17-22!
