Our Models for Omaha Fashion Week 2014!

Omaha Fashion Week is less than one week away and we are excited to introduce our very special and talented models from Develop Model Management

Develop Model Management is a sponsor of Omaha Fashion Week and its casting director is responsible for managing scouting, booking and training models. We thank them for the wonderful models that will be modeling our hats on the runway!

Each model was invited to come to Springfield Artworks Gallery and pick out anything that they wanted to wear for a photo to show their style!

Here they are!


Model Olivia Freeman
Meet Olivia Freeman. When asked to describe herself in one word, Olivia shared that she is "Creative." We just love creative people!

Olivia likes skinny jeans, boots, tank tops, leather jackets, and sometimes she wear hats. We hope that after OFW, she will love hats even more!

Olivia has been modeling about two months and said that her favorite model is Miranda Kerr, because her friends say sometimes she looks like her.

With her modeling career, Olivia hopes to travel and see the world! We bet you will be doing that someday, Olivia!

Olivia loves to dance, sing and play the piano in her free time.

Model Jensen Theisen

Jensen describes herself as "Unique." We couldn't agree more, Jensen!

A big believer in natural hair and make-up, Jensen believes that a natural look brings out the true beauty in a person: a style that is different from others.

Jensen's favorite designer is Michael Kors. What draws her to his designs are the "Simple, but high fashion look."

Jensen has been modeling for four years and her favorite model is Cara Delevingne. She loves Cara's style and feels that the two of them have the same taste. "Cara has a very natural look, and that is what I love," said Jensen.

Jensen's aspirations are to travel the world and her favorite hobby is every girl's dream: shopping! We like the way you think, Jensen!


Model Sydne Weber
We love the way Sydne describes herself in one word as, "Inviting." Makes you want to learn more about her, doesn't it? Well, wait no longer!

Not one to play it safe when it comes to her style, she likes to wear things that make a statement and are unique.

Sydne's favorite designer is Kate Spade. When asked why, she said, "I’m in love with her purses and watches."

This is her first year modeling and her favorite model is Victoria Secret model Candice Swanepole. Sydne likes Candice because "She worked hard to get where she is and she’s genuinely nice and talented."

Sydne wants to be involved in something amazing someday and hopes to make a difference. We think you are one your way, Sydne!

Sydne's favorite hobbies include music/singing, baking, exercising, exploring (when the weather is nice!)


Model Jennifer Tworek
When Jennifer walked into the gallery, she eluded "Fun," when we met her! We found that all of the models matched their favorite word to describe them perfectly!

Jennifer described her style as one that tends to be an "Eclectic rocker girl vibe". Jennifer likes to take pieces that are polished on their own and give them grit with accessories, makeup and hair styling. Doesn't that sound like fun?

Jennifer likes to channel European style and always tries to remember Yves Saint Laurent’s guidance “Fashion fades, style is eternal.”

Theory is Jennifer's favorite designer. "They have great basic pieces with clean lines and a minimalistic style that can be dressed up or down. A lot of my wardrobe is black and white that I can throw pops of color into, and that really mirrors what you see in their collections."

Jennifer has been modeling off and on since she was 17 years old. 

When asked about her favorite models, she found that to be a challenging question! Jennifer has several favorites, including Erin Wasson, Freja Beha Erichsen, Arizona Muse and Daria Werbowy. She went on to say, "I guess my favorite favorite is Erin Wasson. I love her sense of style and her laid back, cool attitude."

Jennifer would absolutely love to see an actual career in modeling. She aspires to be a full-time model and "really put my heart and soul into it. I love modeling and honestly hope to just do what I love to the fullest." We have a feeling that you will reach your dream someday, Jennifer!

Jennifer takes her fashion as a "Serious hobby of mine. Hobby/obsession if I’m being honest. Ripping out magazine pages that speak to me, trying to re-create a runway look that I could never afford, guessing what will be the next big thing by keeping tabs on designer muses, I love it all and will never get bored with it!"


Model Jasmin Folkers
"Adventurous" is how model Jasmin Folkers describes herself in one word. We could tell that Jasmin was adventurous when she was in the gallery picking an outfit and accessories that described her style!

"My fashion style is very colorful. I love mixing and matching colors and patterns, while making it look put together. I like clothes that are uniquely shaped and have lots of different textures."

When asked about her favorite designer, she shared that her favorite is Sherri Hill. "Her dresses are unique, yet beautiful and stylish for everyone."

Jasmin started modeling classes at Develop Model Management in the beginning of December 2013. This will be her first time on the runway at Omaha Fashion Week.

She described Karlie Kloss is her favorite model, because, "She is very tall, beautiful and came from a smaller city." She went onto say, "She is amazing and I aspire to be like her." We bet you will one day, Jasmin!

Jasmin hopes to be in Paris Fashion Week some day and make a future career of modeling. We can see you walking the runway in Paris, Jasmin! 

In her free time, she enjoys painting designs on her nails, enjoying dance classes, specifically point class.


Model Eli Contreras

“Cheerful” is how Eli describes herself and we could tell right away when she visited the gallery to have her photo made that the description was right on target!

Eli describes her fashion style during the day as “Simple, minimal, and casual.” She continued, “Depending on the event, I like to accessorize and play with prints.”

Eli’s favorite designer is YSL. She feels that his collection is inspired by different cultures and behaviors.

Modeling a year now, Eli’s first runway show was last year’s Spring show for Omaha Fashion Week.

Coco Rocha, a Canadian model known worldwide, is Eli’s favorite model. Eli shared that, “Coco’s ability to move behind the camera is incredible.” 

Eli hopes she can travel one day and be a well-known model. She said she always encourages herself to follow her dreams. We hope your dreams comes true, Eli!

Eli's aspirations include pursuing modeling as a career. She enjoys playing sports, especially tennis and swimming. One of her biggest hobbies is spending time with her family whom, she feels is, “The most valuable thing in my life." 

Model Meghan Gladney

When asked to describe herself in one word, "Smiles" is the the perfect word Meghan used. You can tell by her photo that that is the perfect description!

We had such a fun time taking pictures of Meghan. Describing her fashion style as "Fun and relaxed" (with her Mother chiming in "Romantic with an edge"), we couldn't agree more!

Meghan's favorite designer is Zac Posen. She shared that "His designs grab your attention as soon as you see them. I love every dress he makes."

Modeling for almost a year, Meghan's favorite model is Jordan Van Der Vyver, because, "She has one of those faces that you love to look at. I would love to have one of those faces."

Meghan told us that she would love to "Make it" in New York, work for New York Fashion Week and work with all the top names in fashion. We think you are on your way, Meghan!

In addition to fashion, Meghan likes volleyball, swimming, running and show choir.


Model Amber Patton
"Fashionista" is how model Amber Patton describes herself in one word.

When asked to describe her fashion style, she said that she enjoys wearing bedazzled jeans, dressy "Girly" tops, "Sparkly" boots, having her hair down and wavy, wearing big diamond earrings (you go girl!) and touching her look off with red lipstick.

Amber's favorite designer is Michael Kors, because "He has the most adorable, jaw-dropping shoes!" You gotta love that!

Amber has been with Develop Model Management for 8 months and for the past two years she has been doing fashion shows at Offutt Air Force Base.

Nicole Keimg with Develop Model Management is her favorite model. "Not only is she beautiful and gorgeous, she is so kind, funny and has a great personality," she said.

Amber hopes to make it to Paris so that the French 1 class that she took in high school will actually count for something. She can't wait to travel the world someday. We hope your dreams come true, Amber!

Her hobbies include competitive cheerleading and dancing.

Thank you to all the wonderful models for stopping by and allowing us to share more about their amazing lives! Best of luck, girls! We know that each of you will have an amazing journey in modeling!
