For those of you who know anything about me and/or have read my published works over the past five years, you know that I am the muse of legendary eyewear designers Christian Roth and Eric Domege. Not only am I their muse, they are mine. Christian and Eric are two men who I consider to be my family.

This has been a major year for the duo who are not only newlyweds, but also in business together for 30+ years. 2015 kicked off with their marriage, followed by citizenship. Now, tonight, I have a major announcement to make, and I could not be more proud.

Somehow, a NDA kept me out of the loop on their new HUGE deal. Under a hour ago, WWD, who had the exclusive on the sale of Christian Roth, let the fashion world and eyewear aficionados know that “DITA Group Acquires Christian Roth Eyewear,” and I could not be more excited ‘n thrilled.

As they told me in a text message just moments ago “Thank you love. So it is out and you are the only one we sent it to, as you are a huge part of our American adventure. We love you.”

Well men, I love you too. Cannot wait to see what you bring to the table, and how you grace the faces of the world in 2016 as Creative Directors of the brand, but mostly of my heart.
