Before making the decision to enter the U.S. market, I was a recognized Optician in Paris for well over 10 years. In 2001, with my ambition and determination, I decided to redefine my future, leaving behind everything that I knew, to hit New York City, that beacon of entrepreneurial sophistication. Less than a year later I made the most important meeting of my whole life.
That morning, I saw an unexpected crowd gather on the opposite side of the street. To my great surprise, it was Michael Jackson in the shop directly across of mine.
Being a huge fan since my young age and with great excitement, I approached Michael directly. I invited him to come to my store and look at my glasses.
Within 30 minutes, Michael Jackson had come to me and had purchased a pair after having tried nearly every pair in the store.
This was the beginning of a beautiful friendship : we kept in touch over the years, and a true relationship was born. Michael Jackson often contacted me when in need of that “special” pair for whatever his latest performance required.
Since that moment, I made several trips to Neverland offering the very best in luxury glasses to suit this superstar's needs.
In 2015, I launched my own eyewear brand, Oren Isaac, based on this extraordinary experience and with my commitment to serve all of our customers the same way I did for Michael or other celebrities ; I am now proud to offer that same exclusive and free service to each of you, with our try-on at home package, featuring 5 different pairs to select from.
