Byrd's Eye View - Naked Without Us 2010
The fourth annual Naked Without Us Fashion and Music Festival took place in Music City this week, spotlighting more than 20 independent fashion designers and more than 30 regional bands. Throughout the six-day fest, that continues through this weekend, laminate holders have access to interactive panel discussions, boutique crawls, industry networking events, the NWU Marketplace, designer competitions, silent auctions, trunk shows and of course, live music and fashion shows.
The festival hits its crescendo on Saturday night when Lovers + Liars, Flashmob, Speakerspell, The Honeymoon Thrillers and headlining act De Novo Dahl will take the stage at Mercy Lounge amidst a swarm of gorgeous models clad in fresh designs from Valentine Valentine, Shannon Lea, Amy B, White Rabbit, Jamie & The Jones, Clare Bare and Squasht.
A portion of the proceeds from this event will go to benefit the Rob Bironas Fund.
