Omaha Fashion Week downsizes the fall show and continues as a hybrid event in lifestyles
The arrival times for guests are staggered according to the ticket level, and the food is coated and delivered to the guests at their seats. The digital event will be streamed at the same time as the live event, starting at 8 p.m. with the first collection on the catwalk. Tickets are $ 40, with a voluntary donation component for customers hosting private watch parties.
“We’re really excited about experimenting with digital production because we can share so much more information with viewers about our designers, what it looks like behind the scenes, and how this entire production comes together,” said Hudson.
25 designers will compete for prizes worth more than $ 5,000 during the three-day event, down from five days in previous years. Each runway show features a mix of emerging and featured designers, with the top 5 in each category advancing to Saturday’s finals for the chance of a Golden Sheers Award in their category.
Live show attendees must complete a screening questionnaire by email or text on the day of the show.
The OFW team will make arrangements with anyone experiencing symptoms to exchange personal tickets for livestream tickets. Notification must be made by noon on the day of the show, Hudson said.
Guests can also expect door temperature checks and live stream access for anyone turned away. According to OFW staff, masks will be needed and are highly recommended for guests, Hudson said.
