My niece, Emma Erickson, graduated from the San Francisco School of Art and Design this spring in the School of Fashion Design. She participated at N.Y. Fashion Week and this past weekend was a participant of Omaha Fashion Week. I got to see this fabulous show with my sister, Emma's mom, and a bunch of my sister's friends. We had a V.I.P. table! Which meant that we sat next to the runway getting a close up look at all the designer's creations. It was held under a highway bridge, you see the concrete columns in one of the photos, with the Old Market buildings up against one side. It was a unique venue, the whole evening was fun, despite the fact that it was about maybe 45 degrees and misting -- we stayed comfy and dry at the V.I.P. table. Emma's designs are stunning. She has worked very hard getting her beautiful dresses designed and sewn, including lots of hand-sewing. She has found her passion indeed. I wish her the best. Find out more here Emma Erickson.
