We had the pleasure of planning and designing GQ’s Grammy party which also celebrated the birthdays of one of my friends, The Weeknd. Abel won 2 Grammy’s so it was definitely cause for a huge celebration. The private party was held at a mansion in Beverly Hills and didn’t stop until 4:30 AM. Diplo, Skrillex and A-Trak provided the music for the evening and the celebrity guestlist included Justin Bieber, P. Diddy, Travis Scott, Zendaya, DJ Khaled, Juicy J, Chris Brown, Taylor Swift, Post Malone, Ty Dolla $ign, Belly, Machine Gun Kelly, Bella Hadid, Stephen Hill, Jamie Foxx – to name a few. I had to take one of my favorite elements from one of The Weeknd’s music videos and park it (upside down) at the entrance of the party. We took the same model, make, and year car that was featured in “The Hills” video, — we flipped it, smashed it, and made it look like it was on fire right at the front door. Some of the other design elements we custom created for this party were a massive XO created in metal and sunk to the bottom of the swimming pool. We also had a 30 foot GQ Black and White neon created to illuminate the entire space.
Congratulations to all my Grammy-nominated friends today. Fingers crossed…
