Known for her optical accessories, Corinne McCormack releases her first ophthalmic line, available from FGX International. Targeted to the career-oriented woman 35 and older, each frame has the fit, style and color for anyone wanting to make a personal statement. Included are 21 styles (60 SKUs). Frames come in a variety of fashion-forward colors, including exclusive signature patterns, in handmade zyl, metal and combinations. The collection is built around an important fit story and features three petite styles and three luxury fit designs proportioned for women seeking bolder looks. All frames are equipped with spring hinges.
PHILOSOPHY: “I have always been inspired by retro designs, and I am an avid collector of vintage accessories. I bring a modern sensibility to vintage by introducing fresh, unusual colors,” says Corinne McCormack. “My belief is that eyewear is the most important accessory a woman can wear—as important as the perfect shade of lipstick. My passion is to create designs so women feel empowered when they wear them. I love eyewear that breaks from tradition and is new and fresh.”
MARKETING: Merchandising materials include one- and two-place displays, poster, countercards and a mirror. Each frame comes in a hinged hard case with a cleaning cloth.
