NWA Fashion Week is back for our third year of Fall Shows on October 3-5th, 2019 at Drake Field in Fayetteville. This season is fashion forward, focusing on high end boutiques and designers focusing on avant garde, couture, and evening wear.


About NWA Fashion Week

NWA Fashion Week’s mission is to highlight fashion trends, support local brands, provide a creative outlet for amazing designers, and celebrate Northwest Arkansas’ growing culture. NWA Fashion Week aims to showcase and retain the talent that makes Northwest Arkansas unique, and to act as a catalyst for future collaborative productions. By providing opportunities for photographers, stylists, models, designers, and production teams, NWA Fashion Week hopes to offer experience and lead the way for fashion trends and style throughout Northwest Arkansas. NWA Fashion Week is dedicated to providing opportunities for all those interested in growing the fashion industry in Northwest Arkansas.

NWA Fashion Week is held semi-annually, in the Spring in Bentonville and in the Fall in Fayetteville, and is dedicated to expanding the understanding of the visual culture of fashion. All proceeds from both events are dedicated to supporting the non-profit organization The Arkansas Arts and Fashion Forum.
