Nebraska 4-H Represents at Omaha Fashion Week
Over the last 10 years, Omaha Fashion Week has grown to the nation's 5th largest fashion event. In addition to supporting more independent fashion designers than any other organization in the region, Omaha Fashion Week supports young designers by providing mentoring, educational opportunities, and a professional platform to showcase work. Omaha Fashion Week's Spring 2018 Student Night was held on February 27. Over 600 guests attended the showcase to watch local youth display their art. 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. 4-H members were praised for their advanced construction techniques and finishing details.
