With this week’s holiday on the mind, it might be easy to overlook Omaha’s biggest fashion event of the year, which is a little less than two months away. Omaha Fashion Week’s fall 2012 shows will take place from August 20-25, 2012.
Following a much buzzed about week of spring shows, OFW will continue to produce shows at their new space, KANEKO –a self-described, “blank canvas” and “open space for open minds”. Saturday’s finale show will take place outdoors between 9th & 11th on Jones Street.
Tickets for OFW are on sale now, and run from $20 to $65 for reserved seating. VIP tables are available at Saturday’s finale show for $1000, which seat 10 people and include two valet parking passes, admission to the Grey-Goose VIP pre-party and a VIP gift bags. Doors open at 6 p.m. for all shows, with shows beginning promptly at 8 p.m. KANEKO is located at 1111 Jones Street in Omaha’s Old Market District. Visit omahafashionweek.com to purchase tickets and for complete show and designer information.
