Fourteen Nebraska 4-H’ers walked the runway during the 2018 Omaha Fashion Week – Student Night on Tuesday, February 27. Camille Anderson and Karla Herrarte applied and were selected to participate in the 4-H collection. “In order to be considered, garments must have been exhibited at the Nebraska State Fair and should be fashion forward, runway appropriate and display high quality construction,” according to Andrea Nisley, UNL Extension Educator.

Student designers showed over 50 looks on the runway at Omaha Fashion Week’s fifth annual Student Night. The event included a runway show and started with a panel discussion with industry experts. The sold out audience of nearly 300 viewed collections from Nebraska 4-H, the Joslyn Art Museum’s Kent Bellows Mentoring Program, Nebraska FCCLA, Omaha’s Central High School, Omaha Burke High School, and Omaha South High School.

Fashion Week took place at the Omaha Design Center (near TD Ameritrade Park).
