MS. BEA SORIANO-DEE

Operations Director | Sunnies Studios & Sunnies Face

Ms. Bea Soriano-Dee is a co-founder and Operations Director for all the Sunnies concepts. This lifestyle brand includes Sunnies Studios, Sunnies Specs Optical, Sunnies Specs Kids, Sunnies Café, and Sunnies Face.

She studied BS Psychology in Ateneo De Manila University and shortly went on to build her first business, Charlie, an apparel and accessories brand, in 2011.

As she immersed in the fashion industry, Bea and her co-founders found a gap in the market for stylish yet affordable sunglasses. This gave birth to Sunnies Studios in 2013—now the country’s forefront local sunglasses brand with over 110 branches.

In 2016, Ms. Dee saw a need in the optical market for prescription eyewear that is simple and accessible. She with her partners then built Sunnies Specs to answer the gap. This brand introduced the innovative one-price-for-all-frames model, which changed the entire local optical industry. Only on its third year, it currently has 30 stores with another 20 stores set to open in 2019.

Ms. Dee along with her co-founders always dreamt of owning a beauty company. And as Sunnies established itself as a lifestyle brand, it felt right to make their dream project come to life. In August 2018, Sunnies Face was launched. This beauty brand has been disrupting the market with its luxurious formulas at an accessible price.
