Dionne Ellison, Founder/CEO of Vuliwear®
Dionne is a Philly/Jersey girl with a passion for fashion and always thinking outside the box. She was inspired to create a unique eyewear brand revolutionizing the sunglass industry with technology and style. Dionne found her design muses not in people, but rather in the creepy crawly.
One day surfing the web, I discovered photos of insect’s eyes that were magnified so large you could see the colors and patterns of their compound eyes. My first thought: They would make a “fly” pair of sunglasses. (pun intended). I did my research, created a business plan, shopped the idea to a few friends and the rest is history.
I love to think of new and creative ideas and see what happens. I come from a home full of talented women. It’s a family affair; my late mother was a seamstress that could sew without a pattern and whip up a complete outfit in an hour or less. My sister Stephanie Ellison-Lewis, is a fashion designer and artist who helps bring my eyewear designs to life with her detailed sketches.
I’ve been blessed with a great family, friends, creativity and ambition…the perfect combination for HAPPINESS & SUCCESS!
