The event highlighted the synergy between art, design and fashion. Wakefield, whose work pushes beyond traditional boundaries in art and fashion, was honored at the private event for his role as artistic director of Desert X, a recurring site-specific, international contemporary art exhibition, which debuted last year to critical acclaim, attracting more than 200,000 visitors to the exhibition in the Coachella Valley, and for the upcoming re-launch of the Rudi Gernreich label, a first expression of which will be revealed in 2018.

Few hotels are as famous or as notorious as the Chateau Marmont. For eighty-five years, the Chateau has been the go-to spot for stars who want to exhibit their baddest behaviour just outside of the public eye. A West Hollywood landmark, the Chateau has been home to wild parties, secretive trysts, and all manner of drug-fueled, sexy Hollywood legends. From Howard Hughes who lived in the Penthouse for 3 years to Jim Morrison, Britney Spears, Joni Mitchell, Leonardo DiCaprio and even James Dead who hopped through a hotel window to audition for the movie Rebel without a Cause. All manner of high profile celebrities have sought a mixture of hedonism and tranquility inside the Chateau’s thick walls.
If there is anywhere in Los Angeles that needs the soothing scents of our Essential Oil Burner it’s the Chateau Marmont!
