In between cocktails and amid pool-time ruckus, Sunnies Studios founder and marketing director, Georgina Wilson, surrounded herself in the euphoria of her brainchild’s first birthday along with co-founders Eric Dee Jr., Bea Soriano and Martine Cajucom.
“It’s the most surreal feeling,” she shares.
Meanwhile, DJs like Nix Damn P and Mikhail Schemm kept the house pumped with sets reeling the crowd in with their Sunnies beer, sweets, burgers, tattoos, and stickers. The Sunnies Studios branding was just sweetly placed everywhere.
Friends were treated to their own Sunnies pair best found in their customized canvas totes by live doodle artists Rob Cham and Pete Rich. Different logo treatments were also installed in various rooms.
Wilson says, “It’s weird because it’s almost like I can’t remember life without it. It’s already on its first year, and I was like, ‘what?’ How did that all happen?”
Indeed, the party was like a scene from favorite teenage movies that’s shot in pastel filter and comes with a welcome warning: Everything is Instagrammable.
Editors, bloggers, and celebrities united just to get their hands on Sunnies Studios’ vintage-inspired sunglasses that harken back to the undone glamour of Jane Birkin and the natural suave of Paul Newman.
“It’s just so much fun. Everybody’s wearing the brand, and everybody’s being the brand, and most of all, everyone’s enjoying life,” Wilson enthuses.
Friends like Solenn and Erwan Heusaff, Raymond Gutierrez, Tim Yap, Charina Sarte, Liez Estrada, Boom Sason, Kiana Valenciano, Charmaine Palermo, Victor Basa, and Yassi
Pressman also came.
This fondness for effortless cool is what keeps the Sunnies shining brighter, but what seals the deal is the eyewear rookie’s no-holds-barred take on expansion. It has 25 stations nationwide, 150 employees, and runs a social media presence with 125, 000 followers on Instagram alone.
