High School Students Set to Show-off at Omaha Fashion Week

By Justin Pazera. CREATED Feb 21, 2014

Omaha, NE -- Hannah Lajba is in control of this robot. You could probably even say the 18-year old Marian High School student has a good hold on what she wants to do in life. "I was a Tom Boy really hard in sixth grade and I had mistaken identity for a boy so I was like, oh no - so I started to look as fashion as an outlet to become more girly," said Lajba.

The wheels really started to turn when Lajba got her first sewing machine in eigth grade. She started making clothes. No patterns needed - just a big imagination, just as big as her hair. Lajba is hoping that luck will spill over on the runway. The senior is looking at fashion schools, hoping to break into the competitive industry. That's where Omaha Fashion Week comes in.

This year the organization will dedicate an entire night to high school designers. Lajba will have creations front and center. "Even though I have a little insight in to what it's like, it's going to help me understand all those little moments that I'm going to have where it might be a bigger experience," said Lajba.  

Today Lajba is the captain of the Marian Varsity Robotics Team but she never knows what tomorrow is going to bring.  Hopefully a good show at Omaha Fashion Week and maybe a little luck.  "I'm very excited. This is probably my best work so I'm very happy with it."
