Little Rock Fashion Week Announces 2012 Model Search

By Alexandria Washington

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.”

For aspiring fashion models America’s favorite fashion experience begins at the annual LRFW Model Search. It’s the largest model casting call in Arkansas attracting hundreds from the region. This year’s model search, hosted by Oneofakind Talent Inc., is scheduled for May 20th and 27th from 1-5 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Presidential Hotel, located at 600 Interstate 30 in downtown Little Rock.

LRFW is casting males, females of all ages and sizes to model clothes from its 2012 featured fashion labels. Models are asked to wear plain white t-shirt or tank top, jeans, with no make-up and no accessories. Small photos and comp cards will also be accepted. It’s free and open to the public. Riverfest has partnered with LRFW for the event. Participating models will have an opportunity to win Riverfest 2012 tickets. Ladies remember to bring heels to walk in for judges.

This year’s model search judges include noteworthy local celebrities such as Antonio Jordan, LRFW model coach and former Abercrombie & Fitch model; Arshia Khan, Sync Magazine and Arkansas Life chief photographer; Deedra Wilson, KARK 4 News general assignment reporter; Ebony Kelsey, Streets 101.1 FM executive and MissLady Magazine managing editor; Jessica Duff, KTHV 11 CBS “Today’s THV This Morning Saturday” producer and multi-media journalist; and Katie Cooper, Inviting Arkansas editor, Tessa Maere, The Salon Professional Academy lead educator.

Models selected will be in LRFW 2012! After LRFW 2012, one lucky model will be named “Model of the Year” and receive several prizes, including cash! The LRFW 2011 Model of the Year was Larry Scruggs, of Pine Bluff. Decision makers, including fashion journalists, executives from E! Entertainment and Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising voted.
