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.
