There will be two traditional looks for every city.

KAIT- Kaitlyn Fitzgerald
Kaitlyn is an Omaha native although currently, she lives in New York City and will be attending her third year at Parsons The New School For Design. This is her first time designing children’s wear. “I wanted to create a sophisticated yet easy to wear kids line of clothing that isn’t too bright and crazy, but still fun for the girls.” Kaitlyn has previously shown collections at Omaha Fashion Week, L.A. STYLE Fashion Week, and was also selected as one of the 15 leading designers representing Parsons to compete in the annual Fusion Fashion Show.

Caleb was featured in our student show case in March, and hopes to continue to learn and improve his design career through Omaha Fashion Week. He will be showing a bridal collection August 17th. “My vision for this bridal line is going to have the balance of both a vintage and modern look.”
Quite-A-Riot- Adrienne Anderson

She has received her Master’s from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in Textile and Fashion Design.

Jessica Lynn- Jessica Collins
Jessica is from the small town of Sargent, Nebraska. She is a self-taught designer who began creating clothing first for her daughter, and then went on to make other pieces for other mothers, and has since grown.
