Sunglasses Trend: TC Charton Asian Fit Eyewear

It's hard for every woman to find shades and eyeglasses that perfectly frame your face.  But Asian women often have an even more difficult time finding eyewear that suits them.

"I grew up believing something was wrong with my face because nothing fit," recalls Alexandra Peng, founder of TC Charton Asian Fit Eyewear. "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."

After years of designing shades that she couldn't wear herself, Peng considered the unique concerns Asians have when shopping for eyewear.  Specifically, she says, glasses don't fit because of smaller nose bridges, wider facial structures and higher cheekbones.  When she crafted her designs, Peng considered these factors as well as styles and colors that compliment Asian skin tones.

"I want to be able to reach out to as many Asian-Americans as possible," says Peng.  "I want them to know there's an eyewear collection designed from the ground up, with them in mind."

The shades, however, are universal for woman with petite or flatter features.  I'm not Asian-American, but I was blessed with high cheekbones and love the pair of chic, oversized shades I was gifted during Fashion Week.

TC Charton come in styles for women, men and children and sell for $210 - $330.  The eyewear can be purchased online and at 60 stores nationwide.
