Holmes to return home for Little Rock Fashion Week

Holmes to return home for Little Rock Fashion Week

By: Marleachia McJunkins

Little Rock, Ark. – Since 2009 Brandon D. Campbell has been producing Little Rock Fashion Week (LRFW), and this year will be unlike any other experience.

July 13-July 18 will be a week filled with memorable fashion moments. On July 18, LRFW will hold its BIG Night exclusive fashion event on the fourth block of Main Street in downtown Little Rock. It will mark the return of Little Rock’s very own TV news personality Keristen Holmes as the show host.

“I couldn’t be more excited to go back home to host LRFW Big Night”, says Holmes. Holmes, a local southern news anchor, is how one would describe her, “I’m just a girl from Pike who made it.”

Holmes is a North Little Rock native. Holmes states, “As a high school student, I was involved in every activity from cheerleading to competitive speech.” At North Little Rock High she was her own renaissance woman in the making.

The Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department on Thursday announced the closures at the Big Rock interchange in west Little Rock.

The Hermitage Road on-ramp to Interstate 430 will be closed Monday and Tuesday nights for striping and sign work. Northbound and southbound lanes on the interstate will be reduced from Monday until Friday.
