Little Rock Fashion Week is described as “one of the few experiences in the world that emerges fashion with entertainment.” The first of its kind in Arkansas, it features designers’ fall and winter fashions, exhibitions, musical performances, and VIP parties. Producer of Little Rock Fashion Week, Brandon Campbell, has recruited the likes of Lauren Clark (CBS news reporter), Katherine Whitworth (managing editor of Arkansas Life), and Furonda Brasfiel (America’s Next Top Model) just to name a few. Featured local designers like Natasha Rawls (http://www.najocollection.com/bio.html) and Nicole McGehee (http://www.nicolemcgeheecollection.com/) lend a community spirit to his showcase. When it comes to entertainment, Campbell does not disappoint either. With DJ Heather Brown from the “Heather and DC Show” and many musical talents such as Bethany Hines, Firesaw, and J3 any attendees will be pleased.
Brandon Campbell was born and raised in Little Rock, graduating from Central High School. He earned his B.A. in journalism and mass communications from The University of Iowa and went on to become a television writer and producer. His work has been seen on NBC, ABC, Fox, The CW, E!, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, and MTV. Campbell believes that due to the proximity of Little Rock in the United States and its emerging fashion and entertainment industry that Little Rock has the potential to become a major industry leader in Middle America.

Brandon Campbell and Little Rock Fashion Week also recently partnered with The Compassion Fashion Project (http://www.thecompassionfashionproject.org/) for a charity event called Divas Dressing Darlings.
