LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Divas Dressing Darlings, held at RK Collections in the Chenal Promenade last Thursday evening, June 16, 2011 had a wonderful turnout.  The goal of the event was to bring awareness to the non-profit Little Dresses for Africa and The Compassion Fashion Project.  Guests were asked to bring in pillowcases that will be turned into dresses for little girls in impoverished areas of Africa.  Live music by Jessica Carder gave the ambience of a jazzy feel to the whole evening and created a light, fun atmosphere.  Speakers included Brandon Campbell, producer of Little Rock Fashion Week, Beth Goodrich, executive director of The Women's Shelter of Central Arkansas in Conway, Meredith Corning, founder of The Compassion Fashion Project and Robin Kratzke, owner of RK Collections.

Guests were dressed to the nines and spent their time shopping, sipping wine, enjoying cupcakes, eclaires and the festivities with one another.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Little Rock Fashion Week (LRFW) is proud to announce that a new non-profit partner for LRFW 2011 is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arkansas (BBBSCA). Brandon D. Campbell, founder and executive director of LRFW, selected BBBSCA because of their significant contributions to improving the lives of children in our community.

Campbell knows the difference the organization makes in the lives of children because he too has been directly influenced by the organization.  From age eight to eleven years old, Campbell was a "Little."
 
"The Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arkansas provided me with so many great eye-opening first time experiences, so I think it's only fitting that I help give other children their first major fashion experience," Campbell explains.
