Omaha Fashion Week 2013
Omaha Fashion Week provides a professional platform to showcase the work of regional independent fashion designers on a bi-annual basis. Omaha Fashion Week has become the Midwest’s largest fashion event, surpassing Minneapolis, Denver, Kansas City and St. Louis in terms of audience size and the number of independent designers who are served.
Part Show-Part Incubator
We have always regarded Omaha Fashion Week as part show, part incubator – helping the designers produce and market their work, and ensuring that they have the chance to participate in professional show at no cost.
Working year-round. While the public sees our events twice a year, we work year-round (and sometimes round the clock!) with our designers as they prepare to debut their collections. That work involves building and strengthening the fashion ecosystem in the Midwest to better facilitate relationships between designers, models,photographers, stylists and the press. The Fashion Institute Midwest is a great partner in building this ecosystem and OFW is proud to support this new non-profit.
Then of course there are the shows, which involve over 1,000 volunteers and 6,000 of our closest friends who attend each year. With our trusty intern team, we lead this army of volunteers to produce a spectacle on Jones Street. We often here,”Wow – I can’t believe this is happening in Omaha!” We say, “Why not?”
Omaha Fashion Week is about making the dreams of creative people come true – turning their “I can’t” into a “Why not?”. This is a great honor that we accept with humility…and we admit…it’s a lot of fun! Nothing pleases us more than seeing a designer grow in his or her confidence as an entrepreneur and push the envelop on creativity. We feel a deep sense of appreciation for every positive comment and memory of the event recounted by our fans. Whether behind the scenes or alongside the runway, we love creating positive experiences and memories that will last a lifetime.
Omaha Fashion Week is for people and organizations who want to:
- Develop Omaha’s fashion consciousness
- Reach an audience that appreciates design and luxury
- Target women
- Support a cultural movement positioning Omaha as a regional leader in fashion
- Provide opportunities for young people to express themselves artistically
- Nurture entrepreneurship within a new industry in our region
"Despite what many people on the coasts might have expected, fashion in Omaha is strong! There is a very real possibility that Omaha can claim to be a leading fashion hub in the Midwest – something that a few years ago would have seemed unrealistic. What a point of pride for our city!"
