Accessories in the Nude also known simply as AIN is a three part series composed of a Business Seminar, Accessory Designer Competition and Fashion Showcase. The business seminar educates designers on how to develop their products and business for success in the ever-evolving fashion landscape. The Accessory Designer Competition provides contestants the opportunity to showcase and receive constructive criticism for their designs in front of noted fashion professionals. The winner of the design competition is announced at the Fashion Showcase that also spotlights the latest apparel from new, established and celebrity designers. Accessory design competition Judge Jeanette Chivvis mentions, "I try to stay focused on the marketability of the product, value, target demographic and the need or saturation of a certain product and deliver guidance and direction based on those criteria." The contest provides an exciting opportunity for contestants to create and increase visibility for their product line. Other Judges for this year's competition include jewelry designer Shona Gilbert, top interior designer Bernard Underwood and Accessory Concierge co-owners Amy Coffee and Amy Claro.
