Less than one week in Omaha and Jeong Bin Heo from Korea, a new 4th grader at St. Mary's School, was wearing a designer outfit, and walking the runway during Omaha Fashion Week. She rehearsed for the Finale, the biggest show of the week, a day after she arrived, never having modeled. She was at Omaha Fashion Week because her host sister, Claire, a high school freshman was going to be modeling. One of the children's designer's saw Jeong Bin and offered her a spot that was open. Jeong Bin's host Mom, Tina Tweedy, says, "She did so well." The 10 year-old got fitted, had her hair and make up done, put on a big smile and walked the runway. She walked for children's designer, Hollie Hanash and her design label "Ruffled Runway." Jeong Bin's goal is to be a purse designer. She's already making her own purses. Maybe next year she'll be back at Omaha Fashion Week showing off her designs! for more photos click here.
