We are in the mind set of creating Get-Noticed eyewear for glamor junkies everywhere."

What was the inspiration for your 2015 line of eyewear?
The inspiration for our latest collection was 1950's Mad Man looks meets American Hustle glam.  From cat eye looks with fresh new twists to oversized Charlie's Angels style shapes, we wanted to create looks that appeal to people as wearable art.

As a designer, what details do you find are most essential to the perfect pair of glasses?
First off is fit; frames are the most personal accessory we use next to shoes --mostly because the functional aspect. I think up a concept of shape then my next step is to start to figure out how to technically make my design wearable and comfortable.
