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.
