Little Rock, Ark. - Little Rock Fashion Week (LRFW) is accepting fashion designer’s applications for the sixth annual LRFW, which is scheduled for July 14-19, 2014. The application postmark deadline is October 6, 2013.

Founded by entertainment producer Brandon Campbell in 2009, LRFW has showcased over 85 fashion brands by local, national, international and student designers; been attended by fashion and entertainment executives from E! Entertainment, Style Network, MTV, NBC, Dillard's, Belk, Otis College of Art & Design (Los Angeles), Savannah College of Art & Design and Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising. Past designers have gone to have their clothing lines worn by celebrities and showcased at presentations during New York Fashion Week.

Participating clothing lines by fashion designers compete to win the distinction of LRFW’s “2014 Clothing Line of the Year.” The winner receives several prizes and perks for up to one year. The 2013 winning brand Love R.O.C.S. by Shonda Ali-Shamaa, of Conway, Ark is receiving 1 year of promotion at LittleRockFashionWeek.com, fee waiver for LRFW 6 (2014), LRFW merchandise, and a high fashion photo shoot, featuring professional models from Oneofakind Talent Inc, among other opportunities.

As LRFW 2013 Clothing Line of the Year, Ali Shamaa’s Love R.O.C.S. is being featured at D.C. Fashion Week in Washington, D.C., which is scheduled for September 23-29, 2013. The Love R.O.C.S. showing is due to a talent exchange partnership between LRFW and DCFW. Last July at LRFW 5 (2013), Jessiica Howell Fashions, DCFW 2012’s best collection from an emerging designer, was presented.

LRFW is covered by several media outlets such as TV news stations, radio programs, newspapers, magazines and blogs statewide, nationally and globally in countries located in Europe and Asia.
