Wearable Art Omaha

WearableArtOmaha (WAO) is a clothing company collaboration between owner and fashion designer Michael Brewer, and his father, former Air Force Captain, mathematician, and computer programmer turned artist and painter, Ken Brewer. The goal of this fashion startup has been to create beautiful clothing out of Ken Brewer’s paintings.

WAO, based in Omaha, Nebraska, focuses on ready-to-wear fashion, athleisure, and activewear. At this time, the original paintings being used for this apparel are eclectic, abstract acrylics, that boast wild, natural scenes, and bright colors. When transferred to the clothing, the outcome is bold, feminine, and eye-catching. Next up for WAO is a line that highlights Ken Brewer’s geometric paintings.

Having launched the brand in late 2017, WAO is diligently working on creating and launching with the goal of reaching a worldwide audience.  Even though the brand is just starting, WAO was discovered on Instagram by the Raw Artists organization, and will be a featured fashion designer at Raw Omaha’s Envision event on January 25, 2018. Further, WAO is in talks with several fashion week events around the country, with the goal of showing as an emerging designer at these events throughout 2018.

Michael Brewer started WAO as a tribute to his father’s paintings, with the simple goal of getting them in front of more people. While working on this, he was reminded that his mother, who recently passed away, was a commercial seamstress when he was very young, and also made all of his clothes until he was about six years old. With these things fueling his drive, the company has grown from that idea into a rapidly expanding apparel company, in less than two months, and shows no signs of slowing anytime soon.
