The DPA pre awards gift suite 2022 gave gifts to nominees, and hosed its first suite for the beginning of the Awards season. The below companies are the ones that we interviewed for this show.
Red carpet items were back in the DPA lounges, and introduced to Hollywood stars. Spectacular Jacob Madani, a new line of luxury footwear and leather accessories for men and women designed and handcrafted in Los Angeles. De Marquet gifted some of its newest bags, as well as its famous “night and day” already worn on worldwide red carpets. Heather Marie Designs presented the latest exclusive hat collections using its signature embellishments to enhance wardrobes. She was nice enough to give us one of her hats to promote to our viewers. Kenyan The label Saba, after its huge success at the Cannes film festival, returned with fish skin clutches and leather travel bags. Jewelry brands strongly showed the comeback of Canadian clients with Bullets N’ Beads (a veteran owned and operated ethical jewelry brand that utilizes real previously fired bullet and bullet casings, Swarovski crystals and semi-precious stones) and Bijoux Sail Away Jewelry (handmade jewelry from New Brunswick, with exotic glass or freshwater pearls, semi-precious stones, Swarovski crystals, and sea glass). Fallen Stars added again to the sparking gifts with its pure line of Herkimer diamonds.
DPA always has in the DPA suites, some unique brands: This time DPA invited Dr Richard Garnier from Hypnomagnetism. He offered to the DPA guests body scans, a unique way to discover what you could do better to improve your health! Scent Si Bon is the “coup de Coeur “of DPA: Such a unique new concept to do your laundry, a “luxury laundry revolution”, with luxury detergent and dryer sheets, individually infused with luxurious scents. This is without saying that these sheets are biodegradable, so good for our planet! As usual, DPA loves to support the work of charitable organizations. Because of our planet suffering so much these days, and some of its species disappearing, we decided to promote “Save the bees” in our event. To bring awareness on the condition of the bees, “Save the bees” teamed up with Pearson brothers winery, creator of the grape less white honey wines. A plus!

Nathalie Dubois and DPA: A veteran in the production of star-studded events, Nathalie Dubois, President, and CEO of DPA, has proven herself to be exceptionally innovative and successful in the realm of celebrity gift suites. Originally from France, Nathalie Dubois attributes her success in part to her world travels and the exotic cultural influences of the products she picks for her unique gift suites. DPA run normally luxurious and spectacular gifting suites in LA, the weeks of various award shows, but also can be seen in the biggest film festivals such as Cannes, Venice, or Toronto. DPA also opened its first Asian office in Tokyo, Japan in 2017, facilitating her work with the Asian market and started working with Kenya in 2022 and DPA was also the cause of the creation of the “African Gift lounge” in Africa.
