Omaha Fashion Week Designers Announced!

Omaha Fashion Week announced the designers who will show their new collections in February 2017. I’m happy to say I was selected to show my FW17 collection on Saturday night. It will be a group of creative sportswear pieces, dresses, elevated graphic tees, full fashioned knitwear, and playful accessories.

 

The inspiration for the new collection began with the paintings of John Singer Sargent. I love his use of color and his use of brushstrokes as well as the shapes of the garments that women wore during that time period.

My second source of inspiration was the decorative and folk art from the same time period. I love the motifs and the colors of these American quilts.

And the shapes and lines in these works of Louis Comfort Tiffany.

I’m very excited to see how this new collection comes together. I will keep you updated as progress is made and when tickets become available!
