Little Rock, Ark. – Since 2009 Brandon D. Campbell has been producing Little Rock Fashion Week (LRFW), and this year will be unlike any other experience.

July 13-July 18 will be a week filled with memorable fashion moments. On July 18, LRFW will hold its BIG Night exclusive fashion event on the fourth block of Main Street in downtown Little Rock. It will mark the return of Little Rock’s very own TV news personality Keristen Holmes as the show host.

“I couldn’t be more excited to go back home to host LRFW Big Night”, says Holmes. Holmes, a local southern news anchor, is how one would describe her, “I’m just a girl from Pike who made it.”

Holmes is a North Little Rock native. Holmes states, “As a high school student, I was involved in every activity from cheerleading to competitive speech.” At North Little Rock High she was her own renaissance woman in the making.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. Little Rock Fashion Week (LRFW) is preparing for another great year and people in the community have the event marked in their calendars.

Every year, LRFW exceeds the expectations of an enjoyable and one-of-a-kind experience that merges designers, models and artists together to connect and establish their brands.

“LRFW is a great platform to allow those seeking careers in the modeling and fashion industry a leg to stand on in hopes of creating or expanding their brand,” said fashion designer, Nichole McGehee, who has been participating in LRFW since 2009. “As for me, LRFW has benefited me in helping to put my brand in the “spotlight” of the media. I feel that being a part of LRFW played a great part of my line becoming known on both a local and national level.”
