Meet Omaha's Youngest Fashion Designers Today!

FROM AN OFW MEDIA ALERT THAT WENT OUT TODAY:
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. View full curriculum + more details here: http://omahafashionweek.com/join-in-on-the-summer-fun-ofw-fashion-camp/

WHERE: Oakview Mall on 3001 South 144th Street, Omaha, Nebraska 68144

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!

Sydney Moore

OPS students

Caleb Hanner

10941422_10152763403051553_7475174964314870810_nSydney Moore began sewing at the young age of eight with her grandmother Kathy. The 12 year old had always received a lot of support from her family and friends, when it came to sewing and designing. Last summer Sydney joined us for Fashion Camp  and was amazed at the fact that there were students just a little older than her getting their designs on the runway. Sydney will be showing in our student night as a first step in her dream of someday making it to Paris with her designs.

Caleb Hanner, a college student at Iowa State University, had not always taken the path of design.  Caleb had began his college education majoring in music, as he grew more and more unhappy with it he knew it was time for a change.  Though he  had always loved fashion, it wasn't until he volunteered at the March 2014 show that he knew his new career direction. Caleb began sketching in the spring and June he began sewing.  By the end of the summer he had made his first outfit and is now ready to show his complete line at  Student night.

10978548_10152763382436553_399482236670735709_nAs a child Grace Neary drew designs much like she does today but at the time she believed if she took them to the department store they could magically make them for her. Eventually she learned to sew her designs her self with the help of grandmother and her trusty Vogue Sewing Book. The high schooler is inspired by much of the designs from the the 60's and the time of change. As Grace was designing this line she was going through a time of change of her own. The loss of her grandfather played a major role in her designs and can not wait to honor him with her line on Student Night.

The Scoop on Kiddos at August 2014 OFW

Hi Parents! OFW Producer, Brook Hudson, here. We've received many calls and questions about how kids ages 11 and under can be involved in OFW this season. We LOVE having kids involved because they represent the future of fashion in our community. Participating in OFW programming can build confidence, expand critical thinking skills and sharpen your child's ability to pay attention and work as a member of a team. We just completed our first round of Omaha Fashion Camp last Friday, and I was truly amazed at how campers were using both sides of their brilliant brains to create their very own garments at camp. They had to tap into creative, analytical, structural and social aspects of their intellects, and the results were nothing short of amazing when they unveiled their final projects to parents on Friday. Check out this story from Action 3 News to see what campers were up to last week: http://www.jrn.com/kmtv/news/up-front-at-4/Omaha-Fashion-Camp-Offers-Youth-a-Styled-Summer--262173421.html

Whether your child is a budding designer, model, photographer, writer or stylist...there are many opportunities to explore the skills involved in being successful in all aspects of the fashion industry:

Kids' Model Call & Workshop At this workshop, kids spend an evening learning the skills to have a successful audition as a model...and then they put those skills to use in an actual Model Call for OFW. Parents learn techniques to better prepare their child for a positive experience on the runway. Next one will be held in early 2015. This program is NOT scheduled for summer 2014 due to high demand and a limited number of placements for child models available.

Omaha Fashion Camp Your child will learn about all aspects of the fashion industry, from sketching, photography and modeling, to creating his or her very own garment or accessory. Camp will culminate in a runway show for parents at the end of the week! We have sessions for ages 5-10 and 11-16 available. Next session is July 7-11. Cost: $199. A few spots are still available for camp! Learn more and sign up at www.omahafashionweek.com/camp.

Specially-Priced Child's Ticket for the Bridal & Children's Wear Showcase Create a special evening out with your child at our Bridal & Children's Wear Showcase on August 18. A specially-priced ticket for children ages 11 and under is available for families who want to take their budding fashion fans out for a fun evening alongside the runway. These tickets are $20 each and will allow you to sit in the 3rd or 4th row. Many families plan birthday parties and special outings around OFW with their children, and now we are making it more affordable than ever for families to continue this tradition. We encourage anyone with a child who is interested in fashion to take this opportunity to see a professionally produced fashion show, right here in Omaha. Pick up your tickets here: https://omahafashionweek.ticketleap.com/bridalchildrens/dates/Aug-18-2014_at_0600PM

Pre-Teen Modeling Classes at Develop Model Management OFW has a wonderful relationship with the premier modeling and placement agency in our region: Develop Model Management. Develop is not only a sponsor of OFW, but Develop Founder Alyssa Dilts also serves as our casting director. When I was about 11 years old, my parents sent me to classes similar to what Alyssa offers pre-teens today at her agency. Those classes changed the course of my life...setting me up with the confidence and poise to compete successfully in pageants (I became Miss Nebraska and competed in Miss America in 2004, winning over $50,000 in college scholarships!!), land amazing jobs in marketing and PR with businesses ranging from banking and financial services to non-profits and education, and now in my role as Producer of OFW where I lead an army of 1,000+ volunteers to pull off amazing fashion shows twice a year. I would not be where I am today without the Finishing School education I received at a modeling agency as a pre-teen and cannot overstate the value of this type of education for kids. If you want to encourage your child in his or her pursuits within fashion, or are simply looking for an opportunity to build confidence and poise...go talk to Alyssa! She has classes for both Pre-Teens and Teens. My parents would agree that this was one of the best investments they made in raising me...and I look forward to sending my little girl (Charlotte Rose is due to arrive Oct. 2!!) to Alyssa when she is old enough!

Thank you all for your continued support of our fashion community. I look forward to seeing you and your kiddos soon at some of our childrens' activities throughout the year!!

Important Information for Fashion Campers!

Hello Future Fashionistas and parents!  We are excited to begin our first-ever Omaha Fashion Camp tomorrow morning!  Please read the following information to help you be prepared and have a positive camp experience. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email Camp Director, Alyssa Dilts at alyssa@develop-models.com.

What to expect:

CAMP LOCATION HAS CHANGED!  Camp will be at Develop Model Management on 1307 Leavenworth Street in Downtown Omaha.  This is right on the corner of 13th & Leavenworth.  There is ample parking on the south side of the building.  Look for the Creighton Clinic signs and use the south entrance.  You'll walk down a hallway...follow the Develop Model Management signage.

ALL PARENTS/GUARDIANS must complete the Omaha Fashion Camp Liability Waiver Form: http://www.123contactform.com/form-987084/Omaha-Fashion-Camp-Liability-Waiver

FIRST DAY STARTS AT 8 a.m.  We will be taking care of any registration details at that time.  On all other days, we would like to get started right at 8 a.m., so please don't be late!  When you arrive each day, please check in with a camp counselor.  Parents will also need to come in at the pick up time to check out children.

IF CARPOOLING, complete this form: http://www.123contactform.com/form-987096/Omaha-Fashion-Camp-Carpool-Form

Your child will be given an itinerary the first day of camp that will outline what each day will focus on. Camp sessions are small and personalized. There will only be approximately 15 campers in each session, so your child will receive a lot of one-on-one help from the experts.

Make sure your child is wearing comfortable clothes and shoes - we have partnered with the Goodwill Reserve Store and will have a walking fieldtrip planned to pick out garments that we will repurpose during a camp project.  The store is only about two blocks from camp.

Please be sure to feed your child before he/she arrives at camp.  We will have water available, but no food, as we don't want to risk soiling garments that will be in production.

We look forward to meeting the 5-10 year olds tomorrow at 8 a.m. and the 11-16 year olds tomorrow at 1 p.m.  Have a good night!

Brook Hudson OFW Producer
