LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Little Rock Fashion Week (LRFW) 2014 will present its unique brand of fashion production to world from July 14th through July 19th. Founder and executive producer Brandon D. Campbell has quenched Arkansas' yearning for fashion ever since 2009 with the first ever LRFW. The third week of every July is set aside by the state to showcase high fashion, designers, models, make-up and hair artistry and promote the state's booming fashion scene.

"This is another exciting year for us," says Campbell. "I can sense greatness, due to the atmosphere and the positive energy that's surrounding Little Rock Fashion Week. This year, we're producing some new events and we've enhanced some of our audiences' favorite events. These unique elements add to the experience and will continue to put us in an upper echelon category, in terms of fashion productions nationwide. I'm certain that people are going to enjoy themselves at each presentation."

Fashion is always evolving and so are this year's designers and events. LRFW 2014 will consist of nine elaborate fashion labels (visit www.littlerockfashionweek.com/labels.php): Cupani Fashion (Little Rock via Bishkek, Kyrgyz Republic), Dair by Adair (Little Rock via Denver), iME Clothing (Little Rock), Merocki by Diva Styl (Dallas), N'cholé Féroce (Little Rock), Richie Clark Clothing (Little Rock), ThurshPulKair (Little Rock), TrenDevian Couture ( New Orleans) and 2013 Clothing Line of the Year award recipient Love R.O.C.S (Conway, Ark.).

LRFW 6 features 80 elite models from across the state of Arkansas and surrounding states. In May over 300 aspiring models tried out at LRFW's annual model search.

Style and fashion journalist Helaine Williams, of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, will be honored as the LRFW's 2014 Fashion Icon award honoree at LRFW's Big Night event.

"I am very honored to be chosen as the Fashion Icon Recipient this time around," says Williams, who has covered LRFW since its inception.

Rance Golden, Jr., of KARK's Total Rance Live (TRL), will host, Music Remix Experience, the first event to kick off LRFW on July 14th. 12 year old model Morgan Prather will emcee LRFW's For Kids By Kids event presented by Little Rock Zoo on July 16th. Kelsey Theall, 2014 Miss Arkansas International will host Friday night's event, LRFW Bare. On Saturday, July 19th at the Statehouse Convention Center, LRFW's Big Night host will be the lovely and talented Denise Middleton, of KTHV Channel 11.

"Expectations are, that it is going to be even better than the year before", says Ali-Shamaa.

That's exactly what those in attendance can look forward to, along with a vibrant atmosphere while viewing these high fashions.
