Omaha Fashion Week Alternate to Show on the Runway
We would like to congratulate 4-H member Rebecca McKay on having her garment chosen to show on the runway for the Omaha Fashion Week! A tip for those wanting to apply next year: The garments selected to show on the runway have unique design elements and high craft details. Consider using a distinct pattern, making your own pattern or incorporating styling details to create a fashion forward look. Keep this in mind as you plan your clothing projects this coming year!
