Meet Karina Leigh of C by Karina in Beverly Hills

Today we’d like to introduce you to Karina Leigh.

Karina, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I started in this business when I was 16 years old at a Beverly Hills eye wear store. This did not feel like work for me. At that point, I knew it was my passion! My parents also could see how much I enjoyed working in the eyewear field. I then earned my optician license. At the age of 24 my family and I started C by Karina.

Has it been a smooth road?
Being an entrepreneur has never been easy. They’re always ups and downs as you have to maintain proper inventory and keep up with the latest eyewear trends.

So, let’s switch gears a bit and go into the C by Karina story. Tell us more about the business.
I am known for always being ahead of the trend. I specialize in sourcing exclusive designer eyewear pieces. My store is also known for finding the new and hot eyewear designers before they become “IT.” I am most proud of being in business for almost 20 years strong and have a loyal customer base. What sets me apart is my solid customer service.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
In the next 5 to 10 years I see Eyewear becoming even more of an accessory VS a necessity.
