LRFW impacts local community

LRFW impacts local community

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.”
