Television has become just as popular as film, if not more, in recent years. This makes the Emmy Awards and events that accompany them during the week, even more exciting. The ever-popular gifting suites were in full force in Los Angeles during this year’s 66th annual Primetime Emmys. It may not be the “Go-Go” 90’s, but there is certainly more gifting and more meaning in gifting. One of them however, had a multi-dimensional approach to giving.
The "Ecoluxe Lounge, "held at the iconic Beverly Hilton invited several primetime Emmy nominees and presenters, while raising awareness and funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters Los Angeles. Not only was there a charity being honored, but also pets were honored in the celebrity pet lounge. Mostly dogs turned out, including Jiff, the famous Pomeranian actor/model who's appeared in Katy Perry videos and Cover Girl commercials. Perfect timing with International Dog Day this week.
Overall, the mission of the Ecoluxe Lounge’s produced by Durkin Entertainment throughout the year is “Green” - eco-sustainability and environment-friendly. The best products in lifestyle, eco-conscious brands and luxury vacations.
Ecoluxe Lounge guests enjoyed a Sunday filled with wine tastings from Club W, farm-to-table fare from the in-house Hilton restaurant Circa 55, a MAN GLAM lounge, the best in fashion in beauty and music by DJ Dime. The space was designed by White Lotus Productions, in which décor was themed inside the Stardust Penthouse and outside on the roof deck. The color scheme was bright pinks, greens and teal, with white furniture, umbrellas and patterned pillows. Floral design was in sync with décor, cheerful and fresh. The pictures speak for themselves.
On the fashion front, couture designer Mark Roscoe came in from Chicago, kicking off his visit with a trunk show and later showing his gowns. Mark has quite story behind the brand. With 20 years in the business his custom pieces are sophisticated, made for any size and one-of-a-kind. He also makes men’s ties. Beau Bridges (Masters of Sex) picked up a silk tie of his own.
