Noto Fashion Show

I’ve been meaning to write this post for quite some time (among many others) but wedding season has really pumped the breaks on my blogging schedule as of late through both my attendance and hand lettering work. *Currently typing with sore puffy fingers, riddled with late night X-Acto nicks and misfortunes.*
Moving on, last month I had the pleasure of attending Akron’s 6th annual summer fashion show (remember this post?). The event is hosted by Akron’s own NOTO boutique, a hidden gem located deep in the Orangerie mall. Downtown’s rustic Trolley Barn was an all too appropriate choice for this summer’s show theme, “Vintage Americana.”
Women were adorned in bold shades of crimson and cobalt while local vendors sold bites, booze, and goods around the outskirts of the stage. Attendees were greeted with a complimentary signature “Notini,” pictured to the right. My mother was my date and it was a perfect evening of big laughs, great food, and lovely lines all in support of beautiful Akron.
While my camera was on hand, my memory card managed to miss the trip. Aside from a few photos above I managed to snap with my iphone, all images are compliments of local Studio KMR Photography.

    aww that’s so fun you went with your momma! and this event looks awesome- i love vintage so having a full fashion show (with cocktails included it seems!) would have been a dream. And good luck getting through the rest of wedding season ;)

    I’ve never been to a fashion show before but it actually looks like fun! We sometimes have small ones in Santa Barbara and I may try to go the next time :)

      I was a little out of my element as well Becca but I assure you it serves up a perfect GNO. I would have never known this event even existed had they not reached out, glad they did. :)
