Omaha Fashion Week


Omaha Fashion Week is highlighting themes of reckless self-expression during our Spring 2024 AUDACIOUS Season. As we focus on fashion-for-good we honor the audacity it takes to use our voices to create meaningful change in our communities. This season’s designers draw inspiration from nature and unconventional materials while exploring themes of feminism and cultural heritage.

Throughout the week, we will be showcasing 20 Emerging Designers + 14 Featured designers who will present their collections during 3 nights of our Spring 2024: AUDACIOUS Season. We will be welcoming back our beloved high school students from across the state as well as college students from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln for our annual spring student night. Finally, we will be featuring multiple headlining designers including one of our Golden Shears award winners from the Fall 2023 season.

Their inspirations manifest through streetwear, bridal gowns, eveningwear, avant-garde, and even swimwear lines! We’ll see global influence over the collection’s aesthetics from Japan to Ukraine, Kenya to Cuba, Colombia, and India.

Of these, 14 of our designers are high school or college students. We have 13 designers returning to our runways, and 21 designers who are brand new to our show. This group is from all over the US including our local Nebraskans, our neighbors in Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri, and a few making the trek from California, Texas, Louisiana, Illinois, and Colorado.

This season’s lineup includes 6 individuals who have started their journey with us as apprentices and volunteers for our showcases. We are so proud to present to you their bodies of work, after seeing them grow under our guide for the last few seasons.

We are so inspired by this amazing lineup of Emerging Designers who will be showcasing in the first half of every show! Emerging Designers are either brand new to the OFW runway, student designers, or veteran designers trying out a completely new method of creation. We will close each show with an incredible lineup of inspiring collections by our Featured Designers. This designer track is full of experts at their craft who will showcase high-quality, ready-to-buy looks on the runway.
