CONGRATULATIONS TO

MARGIE TREMBLEY OF SPRINGFIELD ARTWORKS

She was selected to show her fascinator hats and bridal memory scarves in the upcoming Fashion Week event in Omaha in August.

Omaha Fashion Week organizers announced the designers who have been selected to show during the spring/summer 2014 collections this Aug. 19-24. The lineup of 30 designers includes five newcomers, seven from outside of Nebraska and three high school students.

“We were blown away by how well prepared all the designers were this year and the quality of the applications,” said OFW Producer, Brook Hudson. “The talent and creativity continues to get better each season.” The show schedule and location will be announced at the end of the month. Tickets go on sale to the public on June 1.
