Omaha Fashion Week concluded Saturday evening after a weeklong celebration of fashion talent in the Midwest. Over 60 designers and 15 boutiques showed collections on the runway this week. Sixteen designers in two showcases and 42 student designers in the Metropolitan Community College Student Night competed for nightly $500 cash prizes.

Emerging designers were scored by an Omaha Fashion Week Selection Panel composed of David Scott, Nanci Stephenson, Denise Ervin, Brett Foster, Rick Carey, and Jenny Pool. Featured designers were scored by a Selection Panel composed of Vanessa Barrett, Sam Hohman, Dan Richters, Dr. Barbara Trout, and Nick Huff. The panels scored designs based on the creativity and innovation of the collection as well as overall presentation.

Top scores were tallied to determine the winner for the nightly awards. We are excited to announce the top designer for each night.
