In today’s challenging job market, details matter. That’s why Nader Zadi, optician and owner of Customeyes, is donating 95 pairs of luxury custom eyeglasses to the nonprofit Dress for Success Worldwide, an organization that promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
Nader Zadi is the country’s premiere eyewear artisan specializing in vintage and bespoke frames, www.rareframes.com . The lightweight, handcrafted, tailor-made eyeglasses are one of a kind and are designed to project confidence, elegance, and a classic style.
“When we get dressed, we are asserting a certain image to prepare us for the day ahead, whether it’s going to work, attending a meeting, a job interview or various social occasions,” Zadi said. “We want to feel comfortable and confident, and we want to be perceived a certain way.”
For women who are competing for limited jobs, professional attire and accessories not only make a positive impression on an employer — but can also enhance a woman’s sense of self-confidence.
”We are so grateful to Nader Zadi for the generous donation of eyeglasses,” said Joi Gordon, CEO of Dress for Success Worldwide. “Our women, most of whom are single mothers, often put themselves last. This donation, a necessity they may not have budgeted for themselves, will complement the professional look of these deserving women and provide added confidence as they embark on their interviews and new careers.”
Zadi’s custom eyewear is designed to complement an individual’s features, complexion and facial proportions.
“Our clothes, eyeglasses and accessories help us convey our individual style, status, prominence and sometimes influence,” Zadi added. “We are dressing for success. And it helps to be able to see clearly and to be seen as distinguished.”
