Lights, Camera, Legs! LRFW announces 2017 models.
Wednesday - June 21, 2017
Little Rock, Ark.— Brandon D. Campbell’s Little Rock Fashion Week has been a shining ray of light on the city of Little Rock for nine seasons. Every year models from all over come to audition, to see if they can snag a chance at being chosen to graze the runway. A few of the chosen models for LRFW 9 shared their thoughts on the upcoming final LRFW.
“Own your individuality on the runway, and you will prosper like no other,” said Ebony Cannady, model from Pine Bluff, Ark.
Rosalyn Cornelius, a returning model from Baton Rouge has been modeling for three years now. Cornelius won LRFW’s 2016 Model of the Year award, an annual award selected collectively by media members, fashion executives, scouts and LRFW participants.
Cornelius was one of the judges for this year’s LRFW Model Search. Cornelius explained that she enjoyed her experience as a judge, but she learned that it’s not wise to mix business with friendship. She expressed that it was hard judging the models if they did wrong, because a lot of them were her friends.
“I feel like the finale of Little Rock is going to go out with a bang, and I’m going to meet more people and see what’s new,” said Cornelius.
Mackenzie Howald, of Ft. Smith, Ark., is one of the younger models selected for LRFW. At twelve years old Howald is ready to conquer everything ahead of her. Given Howald’s age, she offers advice to young aspiring models.
“Don’t give up on your dreams; you should just go for it. It’s a really good experience, and it can build your confidence” said Howald.
Cannady is a first time model for LRFW is looking forward to taking it all in.
“I want to absorb as much information as I possibly can. This is a new experience for me and I would like to learn different fashion styles and modeling techniques. I also want to acquire the skills to become a better model,” said Cannady.
Cannady explained that she was nervous about trying out at first. She got more comfortable once she met everyone and seen that they were so nice.
Darshán Nichols, of Conway, Ark., expressed goals he hoped to achieve by doing LRFW.
“A couple of my goals as a model include building confidence and growing as an individual. Also, [I want] to find what is special within myself, and have the courage to do different things of that aspect,” he said.
