Nite Bite: Fusion for a Cause

Art, models and fundraising merged at Nu Sanctuary with eye-popping results.

Fusion for a Cause @ Nu (7/15/10)

“Will the models be wearing the paintings... like a sandwich board?” I wondered on the way to Nu Sanctuary Lounge. The art-inspired fashion show/fundraiser on July 15 promised art and models would merge, so I wasn’t sure what to expect.

For the event, svelte beauties with outrageous hair and makeup did not actually wear the paintings by Vegas artist Oryan, but rather became extensions of the artwork as they strutted the runway in cat suits painted to match the pieces. Proceeds from Fusion for a Cause benefitted the Tim Bombard Memorial Scholarship and Susan G. Komen For the Cure.
