Hollywood is a buzz this award season with the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy awards taking center stage on Monday, August 25th, 2014. Other than a ticket to the award show itself, the other hottest destination in town was the EcoLuxe Lounge, a one day, invite-only event that unites fashion, beauty, lifestyle, and technology on a sustainable platform. Taking place at the coveted Stardust Penthouse at The Beverly Hilton on Sunday, August 24th, the pre-Emmy’s event highlights the best in eco-luxury lifestyle and green products and services with a philanthropic purpose by raising funds and awareness for the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles program.
What makes the EcoLuxe Lounge such a special experience during the pre-Emmy’s award season is its focus on eco-friendly beauty, fashion, and lifestyle products combined with a roster of attendees that range from Primetime Emmy Awards and MTV Video Music Awards nominees and presenters, to some of the most notable names in TV and Film, including Alysia Reiner, Uzo Aduba, and Madeliene Brewer of Netflix’s hit show, Orange is the New Black, Damian Puckler of NBC’s Grimm, Joey Luthman from Modern Family and The Goldberg’s, Blake Cooper from 20th Century Fox’s The Maze Runner, Wes Ramsey from Pretty Little Liars, Charmed, and Deliverance Creek, Beau Bridges, and more. The event is ran by Debbie Durkin, one of L.A.’s top sustainable product placement producers with music from DJ Dime and the space was beautifully designed by White Lotus Productions.
