Fashion designer Sue Wong will present her fall 2008 collection at the unveiling of her home,  The Norma Talmadge Estate, one of the last remaining original Hollywood mansions. This is a rare, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

The Talmadge Estate, built in 1926 to resemble a 17th century Venetian palazzo, was acquired by Sue Wong in 2004 and has since been restored to its original magnificent splendor. The 9,000 square foot estate features 16 rooms, six baths, library, solarium and a grand ballroom (among others) all with carved and gilded ceilings, antiques from around the world and custom designed furniture. Click here to see pictures of the Talmadge Estate.

Grand and glorious, the estate makes an ideal backdrop for the designer’s collection of elaborately beaded, embroidered and lavishly detailed special occasion eveningwear, evocative of the romance of Old Hollywood itself.  “It’s the first house I’ve had that is a natural habitat for the clothes,” she explains.

While the home has received some press, the designer herself has not opened it to anyone other than her close friends and family. This event provides an opportunity to draw a very large and very important crowd. This is the ideal moment to partner with Sue Wong and together make a very big statement that the Los Angeles fashion community is a thriving, unique market unlike any else. We invite you to be a part of this very special experience and capture the attention of that ideal audience.


There will be a media giveaway, and one gift bag with all contents will be auctioned off to benefit UNICEF.  The gift bag will be on display at the event and the celebrity attendees will autograph the gift bag for the auction.

SUBMISSION DETAILS: Please send jpeg of product along with completed submission form.  Click here for submission form. All submissions due by February 28th.  All items must be approved.  This gift bag will fill up early so please get your submission in early. 

FEE: Please inquire.
