WANT. MORE. FASHION WEEK.

I’m seeing footage, reviews, photos, etc from Fashion Week in NYC popping up ALLLLLL over my social media.  It’s making me really really want to go to New York and have my own fashion week adventures.  Since that just didn’t happen this time around, I decided to go through all of my Omaha Fashion Week photos again.

Here are some of my newest photo favs from the fashion week adventures I had right here in Omaha.

My partner & I photographed at OFW by Kenal Photography. I’m rockin’ the tri-buns with a gilded forehead.  He’s rockin’ the handsome face.

One of my favorite Jenny Pool designs from her show this year and then Jenny Pool herself making total cute-face on the runway.

Got a little smirk from my model friend, Makayla Merolla. (She’s wearing an Angela Balderston creation.)

A shot of the moody runway scene Buf Reynolds and Dan Richters dreamt up for their show, VESSEL. Dress by Buf Reynolds. (Love the MST3K silhouette situation.)

Design by Buf Reynolds. Metal wing things. Yes please.

Boots. Made for walkin.’ You know the tune. (Photos from Nuevintage by Terri Buckner’s runway show.)

Dream boot alert! (Photo from Nuevintage by Terri Buckner’s runway show.)

This series of photos taken as Buf Reynolds’ spotted her sweetie, who was standing next to me, while she walked her designer lap on the runway after her finale show. (Adorable! Hilarious! Perfect!)

My partner, Cameron, in blue.

Red carpet couple. (photo by Herb Thompson.)

Fingers crossed that next year I’ll have NYFW photos to share, whether they’re from watching in the audience or backstage at my own show!  It’s just silly not to be there, right?

My Real Life Hobby: Blurry Runway Photography

I have a lot of hobbies: drawing, painting, sewing, knitting.  Most of these hobbies have been sucked into my professional work, leaving me with very few completely “just for fun” hobbies.  Apparently one of these “just for fun” hobbies is runway photography.  Specifically, I like blurry runway photography, but really any kind is fun.  I don’t know why, but I just LOVE taking photos when I go to runway shows.  I’ll leave “real” runway photos for the professionals, but I really truly enjoy going to shows and just playing.  There’s no pressure to get a good shot.  My brand doesn’t depend on any of the photos I take.  It’s just me enjoying making art. I think this is probably what having a hobby feels like:  FUN.

Hope you enjoy my blurred runway photography as much as I enjoy creating it, but really it doesn’t matter because I will continue to do it regardless of anyone’s opinion.  HOBBIES ARE FUN.

Dan Richters is the WINNER at Omaha Fashion Week 2013

This year Omaha Fashion Week gave out a $20,000 prize package to just ONE of the designers that showed in their big finale runway show.  Omaha artist/designer Dan Richters was the WINNER!!!!  I was so proud when they announced his name!  But honestly, I’d be so proud of Dan even if he hadn’t won the prize.  The prize is just a cherry on top of what he did at this year’s fashion week.  (A crazy $20,000 cherry on top!)  But seriously, his work, philosophy on art, and focus is incredibly impressive to me.  I’ve been a fan of his work since I very first moved to Omaha.  And still after years of sharing the runways of Omaha with him, I’m still continually amazed at how incredibly talented and humble Dan is.

Dan Richter’s surprised face is priceless as the Omaha Fashion Week producers announce him as the winner.

Hugs and celebration!

OFW Producer, Brook Hudson, encourages Dan to do a victory lap on the runway.

I was especially impressed with Dan Richter’s collection this year because he developed and perfected some new construction methods for his garments.  Created out of latex, his work touches on a sense of other-worldiness, sci-fi themes and power.  This collection featured a lot of custom molded latex details included faces, celtic knotwork, leaves, spikes and fringes.  I was just blown away.

“Observing Humans”

I call this photo “Observing Humans.”

Dan Richters, a fellow Omaha artist and designer, took this shot of us waiting around at an Omaha Fashion Week photoshoot.  My model, Nick Watson, is chatting me up while Dan Richters model, Karah Linn, stands distant in an otherworldly outfit and watches.
