Little Rock Fashion Week kicks off

Jul '10
Little Rock Fashion Week was featured on Good Morning Arkansas on Friday, July 9. Little Rock Fashion Week (LRFW) is an “experience that merges fashion with entertainment.” Brandon Campbell, founder of LRFW, was interviewed and some of the innovative clothing collections created by local designer were modeled. Also featured was jewelry by Novel Approach. Kari Bryde, Designer and Owner of Novel Approach, creates original “au courant” bridge jewelry designs using high-end metals and gemstones.

Nicole McGehee, of Nicole McGehee Collection and one of the clothing designers showing at Little Rock Fashion Week, chose to pair a natural brass multi layer chain and “open spear” pendant necklace with her jumpsuit modeled on the news show. The necklace is “bib style” and closes with an unusual “open leaf” toggle – playing on the tribal look that is going to be very popular this coming Fall/Winter. The necklace is part of Novel Approach's “Brass Tacks” collection for Fall/Winter 2010.

Two other collections shown by Novel Approach were “Holding Court” and “Kept.” Holding Court features high-end gemstones, lots of chain, and metal embellishments – pieces fit for royalty. “Kept” are necklaces and bracelets with simple strands of gemstones closed in front with a sterling padlock clasp or 14K gold filled toggle and chain dangles. Kept is understated but definitely unique.

Little Rock Fashion Week was “established to showcase the talents of local designers, models and artists and connect them with consumers, marketers and buyers.” Little Rock Fashion Week runs July 12th through July 17th. Monday, July 12th LRFW will host a benefit party for “Watershed” at Lulav Restaurant. Tuesday, July 13th a party will be held showcasing local musical talents. Wednesday, July 14th is the “Art of an Artist” exhibit and Novel Approach will be showing along with other local artists; the event will be held at Lulav Restaurant. Friday , July 16th kicks off the fashion shows with the “Young and Fabulous” show. Come by the Novel Approach booth in the Robinson Exhibition Hall beginning at 7 PM. Saturday, July 17th is the “Posh Expression” show and Novel Approach's jewelry will walk down the runway accessorizing some of the designers' fashion collections showing that evening. The fashion show begins at 8 PM. Dillard's will be receiving the “LRFW Icon Award” that evening as well.
