“Sunset Plaza has been our home for more than ten years, yet we have never celebrated this West Hollywood landmark’s glamorous history,” said Philip Press. “This event will give our clients the rare opportunity to take a journey through time – to the golden age of Hollywood – when my own platinum jewelry studio in Sunset Plaza housed the offices of Henry Wilson, legendary Hollywood agent to Rock Hudson, Lana Turner and many other stars. This era was also the time when appreciation for fine craftsmanship in fast cars, Italian motorcycles, well-tailored clothing and intricate platinum jewelry began to flourish, so our event will feature a 1957 Porsche Speedster reproduction, vintage Ducatis, Hugo Boss fashions and retro-inspired platinum jewelry that I recently created.”
The red-carpet festivities will be held in a special event tent behind Press’ showroom housing displays of relics from Sunset Plaza’s treasured past. The VIP guests will be invited to enter Press’ platinum jewelry studio to reminisce about old Hollywood while sipping on vintage champagnes and feasting their eyes on the dazzling platinum masterpieces.
Francis Montgomery, head of Montgomery Management, owners of Sunset Plaza, will be on hand to guide invited guests and the media on a tour of Sunset Plaza memorabilia.
