I have to admit,  I used to be conscious about wearing sunglasses.  They used to slip and slide  down my nose. I would get what I call “happy frame marks,” the wide crescent- shaped indentation from sunglasses frames, on my cheeks.  And at times my face would seem too small for certain sunglasses frames.

So along came TC Charton Asian Fit Eyewear to solve my sunglasses dilemma.  Designer and entrepreneur, Alexandra Peng, introduced the collection at this year’s Style360 lounge during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.  Specifically targeting Asian and various ethnic consumers, TC Charton Asian Fit Eyewear  is the first eyewear line designed in North America specifically with Asians in mind, producing both ophthalmic frames and sunglasses. As an Asian American herself, Alexandra always had difficulty finding eyewear that actually fits her face.

“I grew up believing there was something wrong with my face because nothing fit,” said Peng. “But just like you would never send a petite person to shop at the big and tall store, I realized the glasses were just never made to fit my features.”

The final take? TC Charton creates stylish and luxurious eyewear for Asians and people from many other ethnic backgrounds, addressing fit issues like a lower nose bridge, widened facial features,  or higher cheekbones. The glasses fit so well, that you could actually shake your head or lean as far forward as you can and they would still stay in place, even with my low nose bridge! And those “happy frame marks?” They are a long- gone afterthought!   The end result is eyewear which sits properly on the face and that stays in place where it should. And let’s not forget how incredibly light and comfortable they are-  not once did I get pressure headaches behind the ears!

More than just stylishly chic sunglasses, TC Charton also has prescription eyeglasses collections for men, women, and children. All materials are of highest quality, from Europe and Japan and some parts have to be molded by hand to get the perfect fit. Have you tried TC Charton Eyewear?
