I actually started out as a model , tried out for a modeling group and made the team, then started runway coaching and it sailed on from there. Ive worked with numerous of fashion shows, production companies, entertainment companies.
Posh: What inspired you to get into the shades design business and how long have you been designing shades?
Prinze Naki: The designing side always was there but actually put to work june 2010 just took a pair of 3D glasses in my room and just started to put crazy things all over them and then started to discover really unique pieces of art and thats when the whole Eyewear thing was born and I then knew this was something I wanted to do and I wanted the world to see. My shades are very Over The Top , really good for editorial shoots, anything behind the camera.
Playing with my imagination, and creativity is what inspired me get in the design business because I then knew I had something to share and something that I knew people would go crazy for. I been designing now for a year and one month now but release my collection entitled BOLD in May of 2011.
