Kari Feinstein’s Style Lounge was the premiere stop for celebrities to for the 2011 MTV Movie Awards festivities for nominees, presenters, trendsetters, and VIP’s.  Kari Feinstein's elegant Style Lounge was the first celebrity, gifting suite of its kind and have always been a favorite stop for A-List Celebrities.  Kari Feinstein’s 2011 MTV Movie Awards gifting suite was held this year at the beautiful W Hotel in Hollywood. Here, the VIP’s were pampered, styled, and treated to fashion’s finest, beauty’s best, and life’s luxuries before the 2011 MTV Movie Awards. 


Amber Ozinga, Co-Owner of Beach Handbags Made From High Quality Neoprene

Beach Handbags were creating quite a stir with the invited guests of the Style Lounge.  Amber and Karl Ozinga are co-owners/ designers of Beach Handbags.  Karl came up with the concept of the unique handbags, messenger bags, camera bags, computer cases, sandals, and numerous other products while Amber designs the beautiful, colorful designs.

While studying textile design at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, Karl conceived the idea of a handbag line "utilizing the materials we consider or use for summer beach and surf activities into something fashionable." His goal was to use only the highest quality materials that were also directly associated with surfing culture. High-grade neoprene, the material for wet suits, replaced traditional canvas, and surf leash cords which are found on all surfboards, became handles. The materials are waterproof, easy to clean, and can withstand rough handling.
