Omaha Fashion Week said the decision comes due to the increased contagiousness of COVID-19.
However, some events require them to be in person weeks before the show and ultimately after consulting with advice of local medical officials, they decided to postpone the Spring’s MAGIS Showcases to August 2022.
Even with the spring showcases canceled, Omaha Fashion Week still plans to produce some virtual experiences for fans to see. More information will be available in the coming weeks.
“Fashion for the greater good just cannot come at the expense of the health of our community, participants, staff and volunteers,” said Omaha Fashion Week in a statement.
Omaha Fashion Week’s MAGIS season has been postponed to Aug. 23-27, 2022.
As they began to prepare for another season of fashion in February, OFW said they closely monitored the news surrounding the pandemic and took precautions for their team such as meeting virtually, wearing masks in public, and making sure team members are vaccinated and boosted.
Omaha Fashion Week says those who have purchased tickets will be sent an email with options to either roll over tickets to our August season or receive a refund.
Omaha Fashion Week adds that model-hopefuls who were planned to attend the upcoming casting, will still have a unique opportunity. They will be able to participate in a virtual casting with Develop Model Management.
Omaha Fashion Week plans to be back on the runway Aug. 23-27, 2022.
