The unequivocal Queen of Burlesque and international style icon, Dita Von Teese, is pleased to announce the highly anticipated launch of her signature eyewear collection via an exclusive license agreement with cult industry leader, DITA Inc. for the design, production and global distribution of Dita Von Teese Eyewear.

“I’ve known John Juniper, photographer and co-founder of DITA, for more than 20 years,” says Ms von Teese.

“We used to do photo shoots together. Later, when he and his friend Jeff started designing eyewear they considered a number of names for their new company. John always told me from the first time he heard my name, he loved the way it sounded. So when he suggested that he might name the company ‘DITA,’ I was flattered. I even had the opportunity to model the firstsunglass prototypes. We’ve remained friends for all these years and always talked about creating a Dita Von Teese collection. I’m proud and excited for this collection.”

“Dita Von Teese personifies the quintessential woman with a sartorial grace that is uniquely her own,” shares DITA co-founder John Juniper. His partner, Jeff Solorio, continues, “She evokes the American sensibility of a time lost, when people paid close attention to the details and became synonymous with accessories such as eyewear – what we consider to be the most important accessory.”

Internationally renowned as the queen of burlesque, Dita Von Teese has performed at exclusive events and parties for Victoria’s Secret, Christian Louboutin, Marc Jacobs, Cartier, and Louis Vuitton among others. This "Burlesque Superheroine" (Vanity Fair) has recently expanded into her own brands including lingerie, which recently launched at Bloomingdale's. In addition, her full-length revue "Burlesque: Strip Strip Hooray!" is currently touring, with upcoming performances in the Southern United States and future dates in Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York.

The globally renowned burlesque legend has already added perfumer, lingerie and clothing designer to her empiric repertoire, and has appeared in advertisements for iconic brands like MAC Cosmetics, Cointreau, and Perrier. Her first-ever eyewear offering consists of 10 sunglass styles that are true to her renowned vintage-inspired style while adding a modern-day twist.“These are shades for both established and aspiring icons of glamour!“ she says.

Von Teese’s vision for the collection was to create “sexy, unique glasses that I dream about, but can’t find,” she says. “These glasses are all vintage inspired, but they're not your grandmother's glasses... They're sexy! Each frame is made for a woman like me, who wants to be perceived as elegant, seductive, glamorous and unforgettable.”

Arriving at select retail destinations worldwide, Dita Von Teese Eyewear will retail between $250.00 and $290.00 AUD.
