DPA celebrated the beginning of the Awards Season with stars in its annual DPA pre awards gift lounge

Nathalie Dubois-Sissoko, and DPA are hosting their fabulous DPA Talent Lounge in Los Angeles at the Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel

This was DPA’s seventeenth Pre-Awards luxury gifting lounge, at the hidden boutique hotel Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel, and offered celebrities and nominees amazing new products from worldwide brands.

The DPA gift suites were not active as usual (the last “normal “one was in Paris for the César Awards in February 2020). The firm  Dubois Pelin and Associates(owner of giftingsuite.com) created in  February  2021, at the Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel, a brand-new concept: “The DPA Pre Golden Globes Luxe drive up” and gifted a huge gift bag to 115 guests as well as fifteen Covid-19 first responders, when they drove up to the event . Globes nominees such as  Eugene Levy or Viola Davis, Globes winners such as Catherine O’Hara or Andra Day attended and opened their trunk and collected their gifts. For Oscars week, DPA was back with this concept, extending to also a mini suite in the garden of the Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel

This time, for the DPA pre-Awards gift suite 21, DPA had vendors spread out inside  4 different suites, and in a garden, and will be controlling the amount of people going through the event. So, it will be going closer to its regular format!

“Everybody has been suffering during this past year and a half,  says Dubois-Sissoko, but people wanted to promote their brands, and needed to keep going and get awareness around their products. This is the best way to do it This is the best way to help small brands stay alive. We have in this event lots of small businesses, women owned businesses, and black owned businesses. This is the only platform they will get this year to express themselves”

Companies presented in the suite this year were: Verita Couture, Edith swimwear, Le Taha’a by Pearl Resorts, Le Bora Bora by Pearl Resorts, Deux Marie Cosmetics, Topochico, Buttery Popcorn, Chipz Happen, Omorose Cosmetics, Klipsta, The Noble Brand, Carvery Kitchen, SpartiScents, DeMarquet, Bowie Bites, Fly by Jing, Nora’s natural coffee, Asea, Geek Eyewear, State of being , the candy pushers, S1X Born candle, Bijoux Macarons, Social,  the Ultimate Provence, My Bougie bottle, Helen Ficalora, ZenWTR, Beach Sandy, Sélee, Fallen Stars, Brush Buddies, Rinna Beauty, H2O Sonoma Soft Seltzer, Shimran books and Go Dash Dot.

DPA also donated spaces to two different charitable organizations The Dove project and Women who do wonders.
