Fashion fans flocked to the Omaha Design Center last night for the chance to celebrate 10 years of Omaha Fashion Week presented by SAC Federal Credit Union. The sold-out show brought 84 designers and numerous previous models, stylists, and participants. Emcee favorite Brandi Peterson hosted as collections showcasing designs from each year walked the runway.
Headline designers Buf Reynolds and Dan Richters have participated in each year of Omaha Fashion Week since the start in 2008. Their collections showed 10 looks, one that was shown each year on the Omaha Fashion Week Runway. Chinh Doan made a special appearance to honor Sabrina Jones, a designer and fashion mentor who passed in May. The Omaha fashion community has raised over $4700 to be donated to her young daughters and will continue to accept donations through the VIP Runway Finale tomorrow evening at omahafashionweek.ticketleap.com.
Tomorrow Omaha Fashion Week will culminate with the VIP Runway Finale. Five Emerging and five Featured Designers will compete for two prize packages courtesy of SAC Federal Credit Union. Develop Model Management will also select a winner for the brand new this season Model Contest.
Following the show, the Omaha Fashion Week team invites you to join them at Omaha Marriott Downtown at the Capitol District. Grab a late night snack with the team while DJ Super Paul spins. For more information see http://bit.ly/2vjBbnj.
