Here's to a holiday season filled with light and love! Thank you for supporting Omaha Fashion Week in 2011. With your help, we were able to provide a professional showcase to 40 local designers during our August shows and 13 local designers during our March show. Omaha Fashion Week has become the region's largest supporter of independent fashion designers, and we are dedicated to providing more opportunities to those interested in pursuing this career path, especially young people. We are excited to announce the formation of the Omaha Fashion Institute, a non-profit organization that will provide creative inspiration, skills development, resources and business incubation to aspiring Midwest fashion designers to support the fashion ecosystem that is developing here. We are working alongside community leaders and look forward to launching the first set of Institute programs for designers during the OFW: March 2012 season!
Tickets for OFW: March 2012 will go on sale January 23. Prices range from $30-$50 for a reserved seat and $60 for a front-row VIP seat. Check out our show schedule and map of our new venue, KANEKO, here.
Information about volunteer opportunities for OFW: March 2012 will be up on our website in January.
Thank you to all who have been involved in Omaha Fashion Week - models, hairstylists, make up artists, volunteers, photographers, ticket holders, sponsors, members of the press. Only in Omaha can a community rally to this degree - and take a city known for finance and insurance companies - and turn it into a regional fashion hub!
Wishing you all the best in 2012,
Nick and Brook Hudson OFW Producers
