New York-based Madison & Mulholland has been at the forefront of celebrity gifting for a number of years. And now it is showcasing a new concept, making the products that were in its 2017 awards season gift bag presented for purchase at a pop-up shop just steps from the Dolby Theatre, where the Academy Awards take place.
Trendsetting items from a vast array of categories including skincare, jewelry, clothing, hair products, accessories, eyewear, home decor libations and gourmet food items are all available at the shop, which is located on the second level outside Sephora at the Hollywood & Highland center.
The shop, officially called the Red Carpet Celebrity Gift Bag Pop-Up opened several weeks ago, in preparation for the Oscars on February 26 and will be open during regular mall hours until March 12. The concept is for people to experience and shop for the coveted and curated products gifted to celebrities, including some items that have only been available to showbiz insiders—until now. There are also some gift with purchases, including a gift card from HotelAndResortCard.com.
“This is an amazing opportunity for consumers to meet entrepreneurs, purchase products and get a taste of ‘Hollywood,’” said Jane Ubell-Meyer, CEO of Madison & Mulholland.” The pop-up retail is a $22 billion industry and we’re excited to bring celebrity gifting to this new platform.” M&M, as it’s known in the business, worked with JBC & Associates to create and implement the retail concept.
But no worries if you cannot physically get over there before then – all of the featured products are available for purchase through the Madison & Mulholland website.
