When the world is locked beneath a frozen mantle, wearing mammoth pelts will once again become stylish—a trend likely to be dubbed “so last ice age.” Appreciate fresh fashions with today's Groupon: for $20, you get one reserved ticket to closing night of Omaha Fashion Week on Saturday, September 18 (a $40 value).
Omaha Fashion Week unites local designers, stylists, photographers, artists, and models for a full week of fashion, parties, music, cocktails, and food. On Saturday, September 18, gates to the grand finale open at 6 p.m. and the runway show begins at 8 p.m. The show features more than 160 models catwalking their way down the lengthy runway and draped in a rich range of styles provided by local designers. Some of the best talent for this year's fashion week has been reserved for closing night, including bridal designer Megan Hunt and her Princess Lasertron line, Michaela Cawley’s luxury swimwear line KKINI, and Jennifer Pool's designs.
Afterward, festivities for those 21 and older move to Nomad Lounge, where guests can mingle with the stylishly elite, sip signature cocktails, and practice their amateur hypnosis skills on unsuspecting guests. This official after-party runs from 10:30 p.m. until 2 a.m.
Omaha Fashion Week
Though it only lasts a few days, Omaha Fashion Week is months in the making. Regional independent fashion designers spend countless hours preparing their pieces for debut at the bi-annual show, while promoters bust their tails around the clock to ensure top-flight models, photographers, stylists, and media are in attendance.
The result, of course, is a jaw-dropping succession of styles in the Capitol District's Fashion Tent. Every day of OFW boasts a different theme—one day might be menswear, while the next might be children's fashion, or daring avant-garde selections. A grand finale punctuates the week with a "Best in Show" scholarship and an after-party, where attendees dance and ask their favorite style celebs to autograph their evening gowns.
