Brianna “Breezy” Dotson said: “Growing up as little black girls, we didn’t have the women shown on TV or the media like us.” She and her sister, Corianna “Coco” Dotson, started designing eyeglasses as teenagers as a way to stand out and feel more confident, as they were often bullied about their skin color.
After leaving Minnesota and moving to New York, their eyeglasses quickly went viral, especially after Princes wear their iconic “Third Eye” sunglasses during a Saturday Night Live appearance in November 2014 and a performance at the American Music Awards in November 2015. Coco and Breezy’s eyeglasses have since shaped the faces of celebrities like Beyoncé , Rhianna, Lady Gaga and many others.
With Zenni, Coco and Breezy created a line of eyewear for conscious kids called Planet CB. Each fashion frame is named with a positive affirmation, such as “I’m brave” or “I’m fearless,” and includes a self-written affirmation bookmark and colorful wipes created by the set. double design.
“Kids want to be stylish,” Breezy noted to Executive Producer and host of “Fearless,” Alexa Curtis. “They want to feel trendy; they want to feel great. Not only can the kids be inspired by it, but their parents can be inspired too.”
Planet CB More than just a line of eyewear for kids. For every pair sold, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Children’s thinker institute, the leading independent nonprofit organization for child mental health. Children’s thinker institute make every effort to change the lives of children and families struggling with mental health and learning disorders by providing the support they need to thrive.
