RESTORE and REOPEN Pol Atteu Beverly Hills

On May 30, 2020 The Pol' Atteu Beverly Hills Boutique was broken into and looted and vandalized, alongside our fellow business neighbors that have been affected, during the peaceful protests that turned into riots in Beverly Hills.  The store was ransacked, damaged and merchandise was emptied out of inventory. We had just restocked the boutique 2 days before the riots,  in hopes of our reopening on June 01, 2020, following the Pandemic, which had our boutique temporarily closed like all non-essential businesses.  

The Pol' Atteu Beverly Hills Boutique also serves and the backdrop for our Reality show, "Gown and Out in Beverly Hills, which airs on Amazon Prime Video. Season 1 is LIVE on Amazon Prime Video and Season 2 is scheduled to release in June. Season 3 was scheduled to begin taping this month and that has now been delayed due to the damages and vandalism.  

Contributions will help us restore and reopen the retail storefront of the boutique and replace inventory, repair damages, so that we can reopen to the public for retail sales and begin to shoot the next season of Gown and Out in Beverly Hills - Season 3.

Pol' Atteu, Patrik Simpson, American Media Television and the Pol' Atteu Beverly Hills Associates support peaceful protests and stand in unity against racism. #SmallBusinessRelief

NOW WE ARE ASKING FOR YOUR HELP WHEN WE NEED IT MOST. HELP US TO RESTORE AND REOPEN.


For Verification Purposes:

1. Who you are
I am Patrik Simpson, husband of Pol' Atteu and one of the owners of the small business that was vandalized and looted.

2. Where you're from
Born and raised in Orange County, California and I now reside in Los Angeles.

3. Your relationship to the parties you're raising funds for
Pol' Atteu is my fiancé and soon to be husband. We have been together 17 years this July.

4. How the funds will be spent
Clean up has been begun well and we've been fortunate to have several volunteers offer their help. But in order to repair and reopen we need funds to repair damage to the security gate, windows, doors, and flooring, including the stairs that were broken and damaged.  It will also be spent on restocking inventory, re-purchasing necessary equipment such as sewing machines, overlock machine and industrial steamers and irons and industrial custom hangers, computers and camera equipment Plus we will be adding a security system with recordable security cameras, shelving, and display cases and need to replace 3 giant wall size mirrors (about 25 feet x 8 feet) that were destroyed and damaged. 

Our inventory of over 100+ Custom Couture Evening gowns was looted and the few gowns left on the floor were torn and trashed and ca not be repaired.
