During Emmy week, I got to check out The DPA pre-Emmy awards gifting suite September that was hosted by Nathalie Dubois-Sissoko and DPA at the penthouse terrace of the super swanky LUXE Hotel on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills.

Also at the suite was Indian couture designer Sai Suman’s elegant and regal couture designs. An unintentional homage to my Persian culture, I naturally loved the peacock print gown. Such style, such elegance! I spent most of my time swooning over her amazing gowns!

The “made in USA” brands will be represented by Judy B Swim, Barebumz bikinis, Underground Culture, NDS LA. Also in attendance was celebrity hairstylist Shann Christian and his fantastic line BioMethod. I love how he went to each attendee and figured out what was right for them. His line is a must have for LA’s dry and polluted climate!
