Monny’s History

When Monny opened his high fashion Envision Optical Boutique twenty-five years ago on Fourth Avenue in Kitsilano, he brought with him two decades of experience and history in the wholesale frame business and an outstanding career as a fashion photographer and style consultant.

The secret of Monny’s success has always been attention to detail. He likes to thinks of a frame as art for the face. He has an uncanny ability to intuit a unique look for each individual that complements the wearer’s face and makes a personal statement. Monny’s approach with each of his clients is patient and personal. He has often been called a perfectionist. He is known to compromise on price, but never on quality or service.

Monny’s high fashion experience and innovative expertise has always served his customer’s requirements at the cuttingedge of the highest standards of professionalism and always in the latest most up-to-date styles. Out-and-about and socially, Monny’s distinctive designs are easy to spot. People can always tell when someone is wearing one of Monny’s frames. Word gets around.

Monny continues to attend International Optical Expositions whenever and wherever they occur in the world in order to keep pace with the latest trends and progressive innovations. As optical technology advances and manufacturers diversify and upgrade their product designs, style leaders like Monny are quick to acquire the newest and most dynamic look for his customers.

Monny has always been a connoisseur and collector of fine art. Several years ago he added a Fine Art Gallery to complement the charismatic look of his unique shop. Persian rugs carpet the floor and vibrant paintings cover the walls. An ongoing series of exhibitions of the works of upcoming and established artists alternate from season to season. A number of younger artists have celebrated their first successful showings at Monny’s Gallery.
