For one of the most awaited award seasons of the year, the EMMY Awards, DPA was once again the sponsor for the 2019 Pre-Awards Gifting Suite. This year the premiere Media company set out to treat the stars to an array of exciting and cutting edge brands and products at the LUXE Sunset Boulevard Hotel in Westwood over the Emmy Awards Weekend.

DPA, a leader in celebrity gifting was founded by Nathalie Dubois- Sissoko, whose vision was to show her genuine appreciation to well deserved TV and Film artists who have inspired and uplifted audiences through their work by gifting them with some of America's most exciting products.

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.

The lounge welcomed many A-list celebrities including Viola Davis and Billy Porter as well as stars from shows such as Pose, This is Us, The handmaids' tale, schitt's creek, Escape at Danemora, and The marvelous Mrs. Maisel to name only a few.

So what did the nominees get to enjoy this year? Well, travel was definitely a theme this year with several incredible travel brands offering their products and services. Ten well-known starts were personally invited to Relais and Chateaux' Le Taha's Island Resort and Spa in French Polynesia, only five minutes from the legendary Bora Bora. Another one of the decadent destinations was Soori Bali, in the Spiritual Hindu island of Bali located in Indonesia. Soori Bali features one of the 10 best swimming pools in Bali and is sure to delight.

A highlight at this year's suite was the Wellness area, curated by Emerald Outpost. Guests will go home with cannabis or CBD products from Native botanicals, Barrett Farms, Casa Humbholdt, Sunrise Mountain, Silver Dragon and Space Gem. Rob Rodney will also gift some of its luxurious cannabis bags.

In the Fashion studio and red-carpet section, guests were introduced to Swiss timepieces brand Rebellion. Based in Lonay, on the banks of Lake Geneva, Rebellion Timepieces is an exceptional player in the world of fine Swiss watchmaking.

Rebellion will showcase amazing watches and will introduce in Hollywood some of its most expensive pieces (over 1 or 2 million dollars watches. Madame Adassa created one of a kind gowns, ready for red carpet appearances. De Marquet, another Swiss brand, returned to the DPA event, with its "night and day bag". Two great Canadian jewelry collections will also be present in the DPA pre awards gift suite: Lisa Young Lee is returning with her Reiki infused jewelry, gorgeous bracelets or necklaces with semi-precious stones and will introduce its Feng Shui home pendants. New to the DPA suite, Bullets N Beads is a Custom jewelry company utilizing previously fired bullet and bullet casing, Swarovski crystals and leather for both men and women. And finally, NAUGHTY GIRL SHOP added to the fun, by providing gorgeous cocktail dresses for each guest.

One of the highlights of the suite this year was MSKH Cashmeres. Created by Majda Sakho, (wife of French soccer team player Mamadou Sakho), MSKH was born in 2017 with a first line of «limited edition» baby cashmere sweaters, sold only on the brand's website. Here is a new collection of pure cashmere sweaters, woven in Inner Mongolia, a magical material that is for Majdalike a second skin, like a sensation, an intimate cocoon. Especially, embroidered ornaments, inspired by Senegalese and Moroccan costumes, frame the neck. MSKH concentrates and summarizes all the values of the Sakho's, who are particularly concerned with childhood and youth in difficulty around the world. The benefits from the sale of this collection will be donated to the AMSAK Foundation, « AMSAK Donation » created by Mamadou and Majda to help children in difficulty.

Among the many beauty brands present at the DPA suite this year, many were on the "Clean" side this time: Mystic mama with its crystals hidden in yummy soaps, Sway and its "underarm detox mask", Santa Barbara 's Salt Cave spa and its coffee scrubs, and favorite of the stars Nabila k. beautiful collection.

Wellness and wellbeing was also a feature this Emmy season to distress and bring the mind, body and spirit back in balance. Some of the services presents to the guests were treated to are: an intuitive service with Lisa from Truth in hands and as a special treat, a reading with Pet intuitive Keao. Guests were able to take a break from the gifting and sit in silence to bring their energy back to center while receiving these healing services.
