On Friday, March 16th we joined our fellow Eyewear Designers of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (edCFDA) to celebrate the retailers who supported our Frames For A Cause collection with a soirée and toast at the wonderful Selima Optique in Soho.

In Spring of last year created a limited edition frame that is part of an eyewear capsule collection called, Frames For A Cause; put together by the Eyewear Designers of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (edCFDA). The frames benefited Fashion Targets Breast Cancer® (FTBC), a foundation of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) that raises funds and public awareness for breast cancer.

The 10 CFDA participating eyewear designers for CFDA x Frames For A Cause are: Shane Baum for Leisure Society, Selima Salaun for Selima Optique, Blake Kuwahara, Jeff Press for Morgenthal Frederics, Patty Perreira for Barton Perreira, Daniel Silberman for Illesteva, Barbara McReynolds and Gai Cherardi for L.A. Eyeworks, Robert Marc, Grant Krajecki and Natalie Levy for Grey Ant, and Christian Roth.

Escher – Azure / 24k Gold


Hidden between forests, heaths, and fens, lies Oisterwijk affectionately called ‘The Gem in the Green’ in the heart of Brabant. All over the city you will see well maintained and groomed green spaces with numerous bike paths. The historical buildings, centuries-old lime trees behind the town hall, exclusive shops in the stunning and historic De Lind, and perhaps the country’s largest terrace with 6000 chairs all add to the unique charm of Oisterwijk. It is easy to see why people call this city a true gem with restaurants, terraces, shops, and a wide range of culture and historic sites to experience. We joined Ruud Panis Brillen | Lenzen to tell us about their full service optical store and to learn more about the beautiful city of Oisterwijk in the Netherlands.
