NWA Fashion Week is back for our second annual Fall shows on September 20th- 22nd at Drake Field in South Fayetteville. Doors will open at 6:30 pm with the shows starting at 7:15 pm.

NWA Fashion Week kicks off with a new addition to the line up! To announce a new partnership, NWA Fashion Week is hosting The Idle Class Magazine’s Black Apple Awards as the opening night of Fashion Week, along with a new addition, the Arkansas Arts & Fashion Forum Student Designer Showcase.

The Black Apple Awards is an annual online voting competition that honors Arkansas artists in 26 categories including maker, fashion designer, cocktail, chef, brewery, musical group, 2D and 3D artist, and more. We’ll be announcing the winners during the opening night of NWA Fashion Week this Fall. Get Black Apple Tickets here.

We are also launching a new program this season, hosting the first ever Arkansas Arts & Fashion Forum Student Designer Showcase. This program brings student designers from across the state of Arkansas to participate the NWA Fashion Week runway shows. This program is brought to the runway through the AAFF Educational Pilot Program, a series of student opportunities and educational programs made possible by a grant from the Walton Family Foundation.
