Submitted by on December 2, 2010 – 2:05 pmNo Comment

Last night in New York, famed celebrity photographer Johnny Nunez launched his New Era limited edition fitted celebrating the influential work of his EYE CAN foundation.

With DJ Cassidy providing the music and industry peers including Freakey Zeekey, June Ambrose, O’Neal McKnight and Sean Kingston coming out to support, Nunez announced a portion of sales from the 59FIFTY cap (which has Braille inscribed on the brim that says “history repeats itself, opportunity does not, be ready”) go directly to EYE CAN, a non-profit organization working to improve the lives and opportunities of foster care youth and the visually impaired in order to see a better future.

“I feel this event is historic and we’re doing something that has never been done before,” Nunez said. “I’m creating fashion by incorporating Braille for the visually impaired and blind. I am honored to have this opportunity.”

With a clientele including some of hip-hop’s most respected artists and industry elite such as Oprah, Russell Simmons, Spike Lee, Diddy, Jay-Z and LeBron James, Nunez is often the only photographer allowed into private parties and has staked his claim among the most exclusive events.

The retail price for Nunez’s fitted is $60.00 and is only available at the New Era flagship store while supplies last. For more information on EYE CAN, visit ImageOfChange.org.
