Omaha Fashion Week’s Spring 2023 season of fashion and nostalgia kicked off the weekend with a packed night of emerging designers. Emerging Designers are either brand new to the OFW runway, student designers, or veteran designers trying out a completely new method of creation. They will explore themes of nostalgia, revival of youth, and societal issues.
Omaha Fashion Week celebrates 15 years of runway showcases during the De Ponte Spring 2023 season. De Ponte is Latin for “from the bridge” in honor of Omaha Fashion Week’s start under the Jones Street bridge to glamorous celebrations at the Omaha Design Center, and everything in between. The atmosphere of the night reflected the streets of Omaha and rave culture in the 1990’s. Lining the entrance to the ballroom were mannequins featuring garments form our vintage collection donated by Astrid Buffett were styled with 90’s flare by our lovely apprentices!
