Launch Party at Flower District Gift Shop

On Saturday, March 9th, we celebrated the release of our first sunglass design in collaboration with AKILA® Eyewear.

Kicking off our first event of the year, we introduced a sunglass chain workshop for kids. We thought it would be a cute opportunity for kids to make something to pair with their new frames - getting creative and personalizing their chains - while fine tuning their motor skills (hand-eye coordination). Though catered toward children, parents joined in on the fun and made their own alongside their kids. It's always a pleasant surprise when activities activate the inner child in us - love to see it!

Three things we appreciate happened all at once: families gathering together, kids creating for themselves and playing together, and the LA sunshine beaming its warmth on us through it all.

Reconnecting and meeting new friends and family through events and workshops have been a driving force for us, and it's been incredible to share these memories with all who attend. Thank you to the families who continue to support and show up for us. We cherish every bit of it and couldn't be who we are without you!
