The department of Textiles, Merchandising & Fashion Design (TMFD) in partnership with Omaha Fashion Week presented approximately one hundred original works on the runway at the Omaha Design Center in Omaha, Nebraska. Over thirty fashion design students competed for three prestigious awards made possible by the Mary Mitchell Fashion Excellence Fund. Featured designs were completed under the supervision of Assistant Professor Sandra Starkey and represent all stages of the TMFD program including introductory coursework in Flat Pattern as well as more advanced work in Draping, Experimental Apparel Design and Apparel Design for Industry. This show is considered one of the most visually interesting shows of the season.
