Khandie Woo is an eyewear and accessory company with a wide collection of one of a kind pieces. Specializing in mixed elements, designer Lysandra incorporates recycled materials into her beautiful fashion accessories.
Imagine being surrounded by people who wanted you to be like them and were indifferent because you chose to step outside of the box. I never wanted to be like everyone else, I just wanted to be accepted for who I am. The only way to do that was to be confident in myself, my appearance and my craft. Khandie Woo offers self esteem with a timeless cultural flare, providing practical yet bold statement pieces using mixed media to highlight ones cultural appreciation. I am very much inspired by my Caribbean background, that is why I use materials that resemble carnival colors and patterns when I create a collection. A Brooklyn native whose parents are from Trinidad and Grenada, I created a wearable art brand dedicated to using craft trades learned at home turning them into statement pieces that are culturally expressive for everyday wear. From 2013 to the current day I have worked with many different creatives and industries. In January 2020 Khandie Woo LLC was part of the Hall of Fame Studios Art gallery team as resident Artist. It was called the Khandie Woo 'Hall Of Frames' a Pop Up experience. While there I held a series of 4 events with the media platform Music Fashion Models and partners called ‘The Manifest Culture Expo’ where we highlighted Brands,Chefs,Models, Djs and Entertainers all in the spirit of promoting the overall individual growth and achievements to amazing individuals in the community. I will continue in 2021.
One of the many great highlights of my journey was being featured on FOX5 Good Day NY by Christal Young. Thank you to Marie Driven of Playbook Mngmnt.
