Behind the Brand
My name is Shakirah Gittens, and I've always loved shades. They are my favorite accessory. I was the faithful eyewear consumer, buying designer shades whenever I felt the fever. When I was let go of my day job, I was unable to afford the designer frames I had loved so much. In an effort to keep up my collection, I began to search for what I thought was appealing. None of my options were in my budget, so I began to create a line that represented me. Full of originality, full of color, full of Lyfe!
