10th Annual Fall Fashion Show

By Barbara A. Warkentien

UVTO WOMEN PRESENT
THE 10TH ANNUAL FALL FASHION SHOW NOVEMBER 2, 2018
A TRIBUTE TO JOANNE PINNER – ALWAYS IN STYLE

If it’s fall, it must be fashion show time; and if it was fashion show time at UVTO during the past eight years, it was Joanne Pinner time. Sadly, Joanne won’t be with us this year. With deep respect, high honor, and loving appreciation the UVTO Women’s Board considers it a privilege to dedicate this 10th annual fashion show as a tribute to Joanne, their first lady of fashion–forever in style, forever in their hearts.

Joanne began her UVTO fashion show career as a model in the second fashion show and since then she was either a model, a director or model coordinator in every fashion show until ending her career in November 2017. Sometimes, she served in several positions at once, most notably as fashion show director six times while also modeling. It was as director that her creative talents came to the fore. Each of her fashion shows had a theme such as: “A Blooming Affair–Celebrate Autumn,” “Unwrap the Season,” “The Magical World of Fashion” and so on–each tweaked to perfection by her discerning eye. All the details from table decor of colorful flowers and miniature gardens, to stage sets of classic cocktail tables and celebrity mannequins, to actual guest sign ups received her stamp of approval.

She was a gracious leader and was genuinely thrilled by the ideas and contributions of the Women’s Board. She made sure that they all received recognition. As for herself, she did accept credit as a model and coordinator, but modestly permitted her name to be listed as the Fashion Show Director only one time.

Following Joanne’s lead, Donna Mani, current UVTO Women’s Chair and Director of this the 10th Annual Fashion Show and her Board have planned a grand affair for all to enjoy. For a third time, Chicos will be sharing trendy eye-catching garments of mulberry red prints, leopard print shirts, embroidered jeans, quilted jackets and a beautiful Ruana wrap. As always, there’ll be beautiful tables, delicious food, lovely models, new styles, informative commentary and of course the raffle.

UVTO WOMEN invite you to enjoy a time of fellowship, food and fashion on November 2 in Catalina Hall as we celebrate the legacy of Joanne Pinner, ever elegant, ever in style.
