Local teen fashion designer headed to New York Fashion Week

Kate Walz’s notoriety in the Omaha fashion scene has been on the rise for the past few years since she began showing collections for Omaha Fashion Week at age 13. Walz is bound to become even more recognized for her designs—locally and nationally—after she shows her latest Fall 2013 collection during New York Fashion Week in February.
