The Founder Nathalie stresses that attributes her success to having access to unique and global exotic products and services at her Gifting events. "Celebrities want what's new and exciting – they want something different! Different is what they get at the DPA suites, as Nathalie originally from France, handpick products from all corners of the globe. She also wants the DPA suite to act as a platform for entrepreneurs and small businesses in the country that are looking for a great opportunity to get their products in the hands of image makers and social influencers within the entertainment industry. This is what makes DPA stand out amongst the very many gifting suites that happen during award season in Los Angeles which seem to be focused only leveraging the PR potential of the celebrities.
But keeping with the founder's Nathalie's vision, it was not all glamour as the 2018 gift suite has aligned itself this year with a few important humanitarian causes. Love Light Compassion Foundation is an international Humanitarian organization that works to bring Love, light and compassion to those affected by a health related crises providing emergency assistance during medical treatment and healing. They have a range of compassion jewelry with a beautiful mission.
