FGX International, a leading eyewear designer and marketer, announces the launch of Sofia Vergara x Foster Grant, a stylish, new collection of reading glasses, sunglasses, and SunReaders from award-winning actress, entrepreneur, and philanthropist, Sofia Vergara, and the globally recognized eyewear brand, Foster Grant.
“I have loved creating my eyewear collection with Foster Grant. Not only does the brand have such a rich heritage and solid commitment to giving back to those in need, but they were fun to work with while bringing my ideas to life,” said Vergara. “I wear readers myself, and now that I am home reading so much more, I know how important they are to so many of us. I also know a woman wants to feel good when wearing them, wherever she is. I wanted to offer fashionable, chic, fresh eyewear styles, allowing women to not just to see, but to see beautifully.”
Both Vergara and Foster Grant are incredibly proud to announce Specs for Specs, a new charity initiative where Foster Grant will donate one pair of reading glasses to RestoringVision for every pair of Sofia Vergara x Foster Grant eyewear sold. Vergara’s collection of Foster Grant eyewear will support the world’s largest disability, uncorrected vision impairment. One-third of the global population, 2.7 billion people, live with uncorrected vision. About one billion people need only reading glasses to correct their vision, yet of those, more than 500 million live in impoverished communities with limited access to reading glasses. Since 2008, FGX has donated more than 11 million pairs of eyewear to RestoringVision to help eradicate poor vision around the world.
