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.

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.

Fashion Show Trolley Ride

At the Omaha Fashion Week finale runway show last August, the large main backstage area was several blocks away from the small actual-backstage-to-the-runway area.  They had a trolley bring models back and forth when they needed to be on deck for the runway.

My rainbow models entering the trolley (followed by Ellene McClay’s warrior models).

Under different circumstances, this trolley ride would’ve been a super fun time.  Unfortunately, everyone was exhausted from prepping ALLLLLL day and waiting ALLLLLLL evening, and hopping on the trolley meant you were about to hop on the runway, so nerves were high.

Glam-blur models.

Even with the exhaustion and the nerves, my models still seemed to have fun.  They always do.

Chillin’ on the trolley.

The model in blue, Nick, thinks something about the trolley ride is HUH-larious.

It was a short trip, but for some reason the trolley ride made quite a memory for me.  I’m sure a lot of people that rode it just hopped on and didn’t think about it again, but I thought it was cool.  I love taking blurry pictures (sorry! it’s a random hobby!) so a trolley ride over cobbled brick streets gave me the perfect setting for vibrating, blurry pictures.

Rainbow models say goodbye to the fashion trolley.
