Each month, we highlight a designer in our optical shops who exemplifies the same level of customer service and care that we deliver directly to our patients. This March, we’re sharing a piece of the story behind Cinzia Designs, a brand developed by design expert and savvy businesswoman Cynthia Shapiro. 

Designer of the Month

Cinzia Eyewear

Born unapologetically from the unique point of view of designer Cynthia Shapiro, Cinzia eyewear favors sophistication over femininity and personal style over chasing fads. Each frame is designed to emanate confidence, perfect for the woman unafraid to make her mark.

Cynthia Shapiro’s business savvy is long evidenced by her highly successful career in eyewear distribution, even before starting her own company. Shapiro pioneered a product that is now taken for granted in the optical marketplace: fashionable readers.

“I could see the demographic trend toward people needing readers and realized that there was nothing attractive on the market, let alone good quality at a reasonable price.”

Shapiro saw the link between fashionable readers and matching accessories and so created Cinzia Designs, one of the incredible eyewaear brands we carry in our Optical Shops. Cinzia eyewear and accessories allow our customers the luxury of changing their readers and sunglasses with any look or mood. In fact, prior to the launch of her brand, fashionable readers were something that was only rarely carried in small boutiques. 

Optical grade readers and sunglasses for both men and women are available within the flagship Cinzia and Trendies collections. Cinzia pieces are designed to be more conservative, appealing for many years to come. Trendies offers light-hearted and playful pieces in line with the most current colour trends and fashions.
