COCONAUTICAL is pleased to welcome First Ave Eyewear to the COCO MARKET.
When model and actress Eva Marcille set out to launch her new line of eyewear there was one person that stood out the most in her creative process and that was her “bestie” and beloved dancer Stephanie Moseley.
“The inspiration behind my brand are actually my best friends, the people that inspire me in life. I’m pretty funky and unique in my styles but I wanted to make sure my collection encompasses everybody and different energies and styles and swags. So I kinda look to the people that I love the most and kinda embodied their swag into each pair of shades. The ‘Moseleys’ were created in honor of my girlfriend Stephanie Moseley, who passed away and is now my guardian angel.” said Marcille.
“FIRST AVE” includes an array of black, gold, silver, pink, blue and green shades that Marcille feels will also compliment any and all skin tones.
Eva said, “I’m naturally drawn to gold and I think there’s something about skin tones and gold that go really well together.”
Marcille’s “FIRST AVE” is a partnership with Atlanta’s own Tiffany Williams, owner of EyeCandy Creations LLC, and the brains behind “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Cynthia Bailey‘s hugely successful, Cynthia Bailey Eyewear. For Williams, the collaboration with Marcille has almost been like a second marriage.
“I told my husband that I hope he knows that Eva and I are one. No really, the collaboration has been amazing and I’m so blessed to have her in my life. A lot of celebrities can put their name on anything and not push the brand and are not passionate about the brand but Eva has been just the opposite and that is what has been so refreshing and beautiful.”
