The collaboration began with a chance meeting inside one of the ALEXANDER DAAS Opticians stores in Larchmont Village, Los Angeles, where Nina and Alex connected over the idea to create a customized lens color to express her personality and transition from Chicago to LA. After months, they created the perfect lens design matched to a complimentary frame shape getting her fitted into a sunglass that has gotten more attention than any other she has worn in the past. The collaboration was destiny and at that point just a matter of time. Order your 'CHI-TO-LA' sunglasses here, and learn more about inspiring media personality, Nina Chantele, below.

She has been a co-host on Chicago’s daytime television program Windy City Live, a guest contributor on the Dr. Oz Show, and a backstage award show host at the Grammy’s and MTV Video Music Awards.  Nina was also the voice behind Sean Diddy Combs’ successful marketing campaign for his cologne, Unforgettable, and is a current ambassador for The Boys & Girls Club of America. In 2018, she was named the official voice of the LA Dodgers and LA Clippers broadcasts on AM 570 LA Sports.  Nina continues to blaze new trails.
