In the spring of 2015 our founder, Sunny Wu, wanted to purchase a few pairs of trendy and affordable sunglasses for an upcoming music festival. She looked through several department stores and online offerings, but only to find disappointment in the selection of sunglasses that she had come across.
As a business manager for a top luxury retailer and someone with an innate eye for aesthetics, she was determined fill the gap between high price point sunglasses and low cost/dated sunglasses. With the lack of the in-between, Sunnies Eyewear was born. Not only are our Sunnies sourced directly from sunny LA, but they embody 2 of our core values: quality and affordability.
However, Sunny wanted Sunnies Eyewear to contribute to a bigger picture of the world. Having had international volunteering experience and a heart for charitable causes, she was able build relationships with various nonprofit organizations and solidify a partnership with one of the top women's microfinance organizations, Women's Microfinance Initiative. We are proud to announce that 10% of our net proceeds go towards helping women in East Africa build a better future for themselves and future generations to come.
So go ahead, take a look at our distinctly curated collection of Sunnies especially picked out for you fashionistas in mind.
