The 4th Annual Forbidden Fashion Show kicked off this year with a James Bond themed event titled "Live Another Night" on Saturday, May 21 at the Seattle Art Museum. From sexy lingerie via France, UK and Italy to bikinis from local swimwear designers, this show went undercover exposing designs not normally featured on a runway.

The show also featured men's underwear and swimwear from well known designers such as Hugo Boss, Calvin Klein, Diesel as well as international favorites Bom-Bom, James Tuttor and Tribe from Australia.

Producer and director Eduardo Khawam said, "It's sexy, beautiful and a little bit titillating - that's why I call it forbidden fashion."
