Celebrity Photographer Johnny Nunez celebrated the launch of his Limited Edition 59FIFTY Cap at the New Era Flagship Store in New York City Wednesday night. World renowned DJS DJ Capri and DJ Cassidy provided the beats at the turntable and celebs including ESPN Sportscenter anchor Stuart Scott, Everyone Hates Chris star Tichina Arnold, Super celebrity stylist June Ambrose, Rocsi from BET’s 106th and Park, and hip hop media powerhouse Datwon Thomas all came out to support Johnny’s endeavor.
The extremely limited edition New Era cap celebrates the influential work of the EYE CAN Foundation, a non-profit organization that works to improve the lives and opportunities of foster care youth and the visually impaired in order to see a better future. The New Era x Johnny Nunez cap has a unique characteristic in that it is inscribed in Braille on the brim which quotes “history repeats itself, opportunity does not, be ready.”
Johnny Nunez has photographed hip hop and celebrity royalty including Oprah, Russell Simmons, Spike Lee, Sean Combs, Jay Z, and LeBron James.
“I feel this event is historic and that we are doing something that has never been done before. I am creating fashion by incorporating Braille for the visually impaired and blind. I am honored to have this opportunity.”- Johnny Nunez.
A portion of the sale of each $60. cap went to to benefit the EYE CAN Foundation.
