PAULSEN: With spring break right around the corner most college students are worried about their spring break bodies and finishing their homework. But for Alyssa Koory she has a lot more on her mind. Koory is getting ready to show her third collection at Omaha Fashion Week.
KOORY: “This year for Omaha Fashion Week I am showing an avant-garde line based off the poem Raven by Edgar Allen Poe. Each dress is like a different interpretation of the actual raven I guess. It will have a bunch of big long ball gowns, and ravens masks, and even a few actual wings.”
PAULSEN: Koory was able to juggle being a student and a designer in a week full of midterms. Koory is showing her collection on the Friday night, which is the campus’s final day before break begins.
KOORY: “I made sure all my homework was done last week so that was helpful and this week I just have to make a dress for Friday night for me to wear. I will be pretty good like I made sure it was all done last week just so I wouldn’t be stressed this week.”
