Announcing OFW’s Spring 2023 Winners — Omaha Fashion Week

Omaha Fashion Week wrapped the DE PONTE season celebrating 15 years of fashion from under the 10th St bridge, to the Omaha Design Center and everything in between. The Omaha Design Center proudly hosted 130 cancer survivors and 12 boutiques for Methodist’s Cancer Survivor Showcase, 7 high school programs presented by Metropolitan Community College, 64 looks from design students at University of Nebraska-Lincoln, 27 emerging and featured designers, over 400 models, and Omaha Fashion Campers on the runway this season! Omaha did not disappoint, with over 4,000 attendees showing their support over the five days.

Designers competed nightly for prizes during Omaha Fashion Week Designer Showcases! Emerging Designers and Featured Designers were scored by an Omaha Fashion Week Selection Panel composed of Anthony Deon Brown, Brett Foster, Buf Reynolds, Dan Richters, Dr. Barb Trout, Edelweiss Rothe, Kelli Molcyzk, Kylin Flothe, and Nick Huff. The panelists scored designs based on the creativity and innovation of the collections and overall presentation. Each night, an Emerging Designer and a Featured Designer will walk away with prize money. Only one Emerging Designer and one Featured Designer will be the winners of our Grand Prize Packages!

We are excited to announce the winners of awards based on tallied scores from our panelists!
