Introducing Nancey Harris and Tracy Green, the trailblazing founders of Vontélle, the very first Black women-owned eyewear company to secure a partnership with Paramount and Nickelodeon.
This exclusive licensing agreement grants them the rights to create fashion-forward eyewear products for kids featuring beloved characters such as SpongeBob SquarePants, Baby Shark, and Rugrats.
Recently featured on The Kelly Clarkson Show, the dynamic duo expressed their elation, with Nancey stating, “We are proud to be the first African-American women-owned eyewear company to have such a deal.”
Vontélle’s commitment to celebrating the African diaspora is evident in their designs, with Tracy emphasizing, “Vontélle was created to meet the demand for well-fitting, luxury eyewear that pays homage to the African, Caribbean, and Latin diaspora.”
One of the brand’s most sought-after designs is the Rwanda Wayfarers, a stunning textile print that beautifully complements any melanin tone.
Nancey praises the rectangular silhouette’s versatility, adding a touch of sophistication to any look.
Despite launching during the pandemic, Vontélle has thrived with more people seeking to express their individuality during virtual meetings with eyewear.
As Nancey puts it, “Eyewear should reflect your personality and enhance your wardrobe. Vontélle’s vast selection allows you to choose your own adventure from a range of vibrant, pattern-enriched designs.”
With over one billion individuals worldwide requiring eyeglasses, Vontélle’s entry into the industry with their handcrafted ethnic designs is both timely and exciting.
As the founders note, there are only a few Black eyewear manufacturers or designers, making their presence in the industry even more significant.
Vontélle’s partnership with Paramount is just the beginning of their ascent to eyewear industry leadership. Keep an eye out for more updates on this groundbreaking collaboration.
