NWA FASHION WEEK FALL 2018 - THURSDAY RECAP
NWA Fashion Week – THURSDAY – September 20 @ Drake Field
On Thursday night, September 20th we held one of our most ambitious shows to date. Marking the beginning of a new partnership with The Idle Class Magazine, we held the 2018 Black Apple Awards. We also premiered the Arkansas Arts & Fashion Forum’s first ever Student Designer Showcase, part of a year-long educational pilot program made possible by generous support from the Walton Family Foundation. Starting out the night we made history with the first-ever showcase of Marshallese designers on the runway brought to us from a partnership with the Arkansas Coalition of Marshallese. It was an epic evening and was history in the making!
