What: Launch of CKW Luxe magazine.

Where: Momentum Porsche on the Southwest Freeway.

The 411: Publisher, philanthropist and style maven Connie Kwan-Wong selected the sleek Porsche showroom as the setting for the launch of her luxury lifestyle magazine. More than 200 friends and supporters gathered for the fete that also featured jewelry designer Joe Vilaiwan of Beverly Hills. His over-sized, exotic designs were a hit with the crowd that reflected Houston's cultural diversity.

KHOU Channel 11 news anchor Lily Jang emceed the evening that included $10,000 worth of raffle prizes and four additional prizes for guests signing up for subscriptions. DJ Michael Menefee provided the bumping vibe. Ruggles Green supplied the light bites. And Macaron by Patisse tempted with a yummy macaron tower.
