Boston Ballet trustee Eleanor Pao hosted an exclusive fashion show in Studio 7 at the ballet’s Clarendon Street offices Monday night. Pao won the event as part of the Boston Ballet Balanchine Ball auction this spring. Her guests, who included the ballet’s artistic director Mikko Nissinen , were treated to champagne, hors d’oeuvres, and the runway presentation of more than 30 modern designs from Akris’s fall-winter collection. Akris CEO Melissa Beste , who came in from New York for the party, said the ballet studio resembled the venue where the label showed its line in Paris.
