L'Amy America recently thanked its customers for helping them raise thousands of dollars for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), and announced it has signed a license agreement with Condé Nast for a new eyewear collection.
L'Amy employees recently presented the charitable funds — reportedly totaling thousands of dollars — to JDRF during a ceremony at L'Amy headquarters. The effort was inspired by a company employee whose 6-year-old granddaughter is living with Type 1 diabetes. The donations were reportedly raised during L'Amy's "Destination Jr" promotion, which combined the Champion, Nicole Miller and Sperry eyewear brands in a cooperative sales effort where L'Amy customers could contribute a percentage of the cost of frame reorders to JDRF.
And L'Amy recently announced it has entered a multi-year license agreement with Condé Nast to market and distribute sunglasses and ophthalmic frames for the Glamour brand under the name Glamour Editor’s Pick. The new Glamour Editor’s Pick sunglass and ophthalmic collections will reportedly preview at Vision Expo West 2017, fully supported by a host of point-of-purchase materials, including displays, lifestyle imagery, and bold product packaging.
