LITTLE ROCK – Little Rock Fashion Week is back again to heat up the runways July 16-21. After much success last summer, Brandon D. Campbell, creator and executive producer of LRFW, and staff are ready to roll out the red carpet on its fourth year. 

"I’m extremely excited about Little Rock Fashion Week 2012. There’s something magical about this year. I can sense that LRFW will be even greater than previous years,” said Campbell. “People have spoke positively about LRFW and have supported our functions throughout the year. Ever since we wrapped LRFW 2011, last July, I’ve been contacted weekly by models wanting to be in LRFW 2012. That speaks volumes of LRFW’s significance and the amount of love that people have for our industry. I’m grateful.”
