Omaha Fashion Week Model Call January 13th, Westroads Mall 

  • 2pm @ Von Maur Court-Westroads Mall in Omaha, NE

All models aspiring to appear on the Omaha Fashion Week runway MUST attend one of these events. Arrive prior to 2 pm to register, and plan to stay until you have completed the full process. These are the only casting calls that take place for our February shows, so be there or be square! Questions on what to expect at Model Call? Check out the FAQ below!


Who can attend? 

Anyone! We encourage diversity on our runway. However we do have a minimum height requirement for models (5'7" for females and 5'10" for males). We do not place any requirements on weight or body type but models should note the majority of our designers will be designing for straight sizes (0-4 ) or plus sizes. Our models typically range in age from 12-30 (female) and 15-30 (male).

What should I wear? 

Dress Fashion Forward! Men and women alike should wear something form fitting so designers can see your silhouette. Women are encouraged to wear heels at least 3in tall. Please wear shoes that are quickly and easily removable for measurements. We will need to pin a number on your chest so please make sure any jacket, accessories or hair style will not obscure this number. If we can't see this number, you will not be eligible to model this season. We also suggest selecting jewelry that will not make loud noises as you walk. This is distracting to those trying to see your talent! At the bottom of this page, check out what folks have worn in the past! 

What do I need to bring? 

Yourself! A positive attitude and a smart phone to complete registration. You do not need to bring any photos-we will take our own during the event. Men: it is helpful if you know your inseam measurement ahead of time. 

What happens when I arrive? 

Arrive early. Join the line. In line you will receive your model number to be pinned to your shirt and a phone number to text for your official registration. When you text, you will receive a link for a form that must be completed accurately and in its entirety by 4pm that day! Aspiring models will get their measurements (waist, bust, hips, height) taken by volunteers, have a headshot and full body shot taken and walk the runway in front of our judges, designers, and video camera. You have just a short amount of time to shine on the runway so be sure to practice ahead of time! Then you'll hand your model number back to our volunteer and be on your way!
