Largest Midwest fashion show is this week in Omaha

When it comes to the latest fashions in clothing many people think of Vienna, Paris, London and New York City. Now we can add Omaha to that list. Event producers Nick and Brooke Hudson say Omaha’s event is the largest in the region.

Fashion Week starts Monday. All shows take place in the Old Market area. A huge finale will be Saturday where two city blocks will close to traffic. A huge runway will be constructed for the event that will accommodate 3,000 attendees. Dozens of area stylists will be taking part and there will be more than 4,000 buyers and clothing manufacturers attending hoping find the next big fashion designer.

This is the fifth annual Omaha Fashion Week.
