Omaha Fashion Week is returning to the catwalk for yet another season of fashion. August 26th thru the 28th will be this year’s round of Fall Fashion 2021.
EMERGING DESIGNERS ARE CONSIDERED “NEW” TO THE OMAHA FASHION WEEK CATWALK.
Spectators will get the chance to see highlights and trends from this season’s collection and learn from the selection panel of designers. Our designers are grouped into two categories: Emerging and Featured, and are judged by the selection panel, based on their skillset and experiences.
As described by Omaha Fashion Week selection committee, emerging designers are considered “new” to the Omaha Fashion Week catwalk. This may include student and veteran designers, who are trying out new concepts and method of design for their collection. These emerging designers are working to build their brands while developing new concepts to perfect their runway aesthetic.
On the other hand, featured designers work to promote their names and further build their brands. While designers are encouraged to use multiple creative aesthetics and presentation styles, the selection panel expects a clear design concept, exceptional quality of craftsmanship, and critical thinking and thought processes.
"OMAHA FASHION WEEK IS EMERGENT FROM THE DIGITAL REALM, GLITCHED"
The panel for the emerging designers will be Brett Foster, Buf Reynolds, Edelweiss Rothe Lukash, Jason Redmond. The panel for featured designers will be Dan Richters, Dr. Barb Trout, Nanci Stephenson, Nick Huff. Omaha Fashion Week is emergent from the digital realm, GLITCHED. Three different theme concepts were chosen this year: JOVIAL, WANTON, and PARAGON. We can expect three key ideas this season from the designers: cheerfulness, unboundedness, and perfection.
