Omaha Fashion Week

I was privileged to go to the Omaha Fashion Week Finale last weekend.  My niece, Emma Erickson was showing her work again this year,  it was even more gorgeous than last year.  My sister and I hung out with the designers and models and even put our hands on some of the fashions - finishing hems, etc.  Fun to be part of the energy.  The weather for the event was beautiful.  Lots of paying customers and plenty of lookers hanging over the bridge to view the event.

The Designer

By the way, if you want a challenge, try walking in those platform shoes for any length of time.  

The next day, in a fundraiser for HELP in Omaha, we had another fashion show with Jane RoundEmma Erickson,  Megan Hunt and me.  The photos below are of the designers wearing their dresses and my vests - my first experience using models other than my daughters (who are excellent models as well)!  I am impressed by the work these young designers turn out.  Impressive models too, they work many hours designing and sewing and still end up looking fresh and beautiful. 

This all took place in the studio space of Camp, a co-working space for business start-ups in Omaha.
We had a good turn out and my sister raised a respectable amount of funds for HELP.

Still like the orange and blue one the best, looks great with that dress. Glad I don't have to wear those shoes--

Your vests look great with her dresses, the gold with the brown and that blue vest with the pretty white ruffled one. Nice opportunity to show, and a good cause, too!

You as so like famous now. Too fun, and what a great experience, I bet you learned lots.

It was a great opportunity, I loved seeing the fashions and being able to put the vests with them on the models, all of a sudden they came alive. It was icing on the cake!

Thanks for the comments weavers!
