DeKalb County, GA — Nordstrom has its eye on DeKalb County Commissioner Lorraine Cochran-Johnson, featuring her fashionable eyewear as part of a pledge to Black businesses. Cochran-Johnson is known for her statement frames.
De Louise-Lorraine Fine Frames and Hardware was selected as a participant in the Fifteen Percent Pledge, a commitment from Nordstrom to expand Black business products in the store. Nordstrom’s goal is to buy 10-times more goods from Black businesses by the end of 2030.
De Louise-Lorraine’s Signature Collection was developed using Computer Automated Design (CAD) by certified engineers. De Louise-Lorraine uses the highest grade of cellulose acetate and is hand-polished. Until now, the eyewear line was exclusively sold at optic boutiques.
“I am extremely excited to be featured by Nordstrom. This is a huge opportunity to expand into the general retail industry while allowing Nordstrom to meet the needs of clients who desire a versatile luxury frame that is also optic,” said Cochran-Johnson.
De Louise-Lorraine was inspired by Cochran-Johnson’s mother. The line features bold fashion design to create timeless, distinctive frames that are a work of art.
“My product evolved from generations of timeless distinction bred by men and women who knew how to command attention without a spoken word. I’ve designed frames that cater to everyone from the consummate professional to the blue-blooded aristocrat,” said Cochran-Johnson.
