In one of Austin’s most anticipated fashion events this year, Austin’s social chronicler Stephen Moser put on a heavenly show, called Eleven: Eleven Made In Heaven with a fun, sophisticated and edgy collection that had attendees gushing with awe in the days and weeks that followed – but then again, we would expect nothing less from the style avatar.
The event, held at the Driskill Hotel, featured Austin’s most chic and glamorous fashionistas. Moser outdid himself by overseeing every detail and assembling an eclectic cast of notables who brilliantly embodied the spirit of Austin – and fashion. The cast of models, included the our own The Society Diaries Editor-in-Chief Lance Avery Morgan who sported a modern interpretation of 70’s glam rock that would have made David Bowiel envious. The plethora of female models wore gowns that harkened back to Hollywood’s golden heyday.
The event benefitted Austin Hospice, a cause near and dear to the Moser’s heart, who was diagnosed with prostate cancer six years ago, and began with a VIP cocktail reception in the Maximillian Room where VIP’s mingled. Guests took their seats for the fashionable evening that began, by featuring an all-black collection by Gail Chovan, owner of Blackmail in Austin’s trendy SoCo district. After intermission guests saw a stunning collection of shoes by footwear designer Roosevelt Cevallos. As the event drew to a close of Moser’s triumphant runway show, he took to the stage to deliver a very poignant and heart-felt thank you to the models, assistants and audience who helped create an unforgettable night that raised funds for a terrific cause.
