The Face Behind The Spex
Bex Spex frames are handmade exclusively in Northern Italy. Each pair is designed using only the finest Italian acetate using the Pantone color system to create combinations unique to us.
After graduating from UC Berkeley, Rebekah Kouy-Ghadosh earned her optician's license and created Bex Spex when she saw the lack of frames with character in the optical industry. Focusing on quality over quantity; only 250 frames of each style exist.
Rebekah draws inspiration from the ubiquitous gorgeous Victorian homes she sees during walks with her rescue pup, Oliver, through San Francisco’s hilly neighborhoods. She also enjoys volunteering to get glasses on San Francisco's homeless population with Project Homeless Connect, karaoke, being an active board member at Adobe Books, and the arts.
