Little Rock designer Sheila Scott shows line at OFW

Little Rock based fashion designer, Sheila Scott of N’cholé Féroce, represented her hometown this past weekend as the only Arkansas designer to show her collection at Oklahoma Fashion Week.  Touted for her Audrey Hepburn style with a modern twist and clean lines graced the runway in the Established Designers category.  Scott has been on the scene for nearly three years as a professional label, but grew up watching and learning from her mother who was a seamstress.

Oklahoma Fashion Week was sponsored by Merecedes-Benz of Oklahoma City and held during the week of April 14th-20th with focalized events each day of the week.  A portion of the proceeds benefited the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and this was a huge draw for Scott who to date has participated in nearly ten philanthropic efforts in the past two years utilizing her platform as a designer.  

This was the first year for Oklahoma Fashion Week and when approached by event organizers, Scott says," I just really believed in what they were doing.  The staff was always professional and went out of their way to meet my needs.  It was an honor to be a part of the very first year of  a phenomenon which is sure to grow year upon year."

Scott continues to develop her line and admits she learned so much from this rewarding experience.  The Oklahoma Fashion Week organizers brought in Associate Professor of Apparel Design & Textile at Oklahoma State University, Mary Ruppert-Stroescu, who served as a valuable team member creating more than just entertainment, but also a real learning environment for designers to grow from their participation.  Additionally, real store/boutique buyers were in attendance to give designers the opportunity to actually sell their lines.

Scott says," I was so excited that a local boutique owner stayed after the show and waited for me to come out.  She said my line was her favorite show and wanted to work with me."

Sheila Scott has been noted saying she will continue to support OFW and does plan on entering next year's event.
