Omaha Fashion Week's Spring 2018 Student Night was held on February 27th with over 600 guests in attendance. The runway show was kicked off by a colorful, fashion-forward collection of work by Nebraska 4-H youth. Each garment was modeled by the 4-H member who designed and constructed it, and 4-H members were praised for their advanced construction techniques and finishing details.
