Watch a slideshow from the Designer's Choice Fashion Preview

Posted By on Mon, Mar 29, 2010 at 9:18 AM



The third Designers Choice Fashion Preview proved the old saying true, as last night's Saturday's show was the annual event's slickest production yet. Tyson Beckford joined perennial emcee Korto Momolu to host, but thankfully their talking segments were kept to a minimum. Despite Momolu's and Beckford's stardom and Beckford's enthusiastic fans, the focus was squarely on the designers.

A large screen behind the runway helped streamline the flow of collections by playing pre-recorded, short interviews with each designer before each segment. Like last year, the number and diversity of designers provided a well-rounded offering of garments.

We saw tailored jackets, sexy cocktail dresses and a surprising amount of swimwear. Saturday's show had more energy and forward-thinking concepts than at either of the past two events. Fashion seekers in Little Rock have a lot to look forward to as this show continues to position itself as a springboard for local designers.
