It’s been a minute since we met a person like Josh Fitzmaurice. He radiates positivity, is determined and wise, and as a brand spanking new entrepreneur he is passionate and enthusiastic about his sunglasses brand SLYK Shades, and being part of the Cape Cod entrepreneurial community.
While suffering through chronic illness, Josh found a way to distract himself, be creative, and connect with his love of nature. Beginning in January 2017, Josh began teaching himself fashion design through YouTube, and in July of this year SLYK began selling stylish and unique men’s and women’s sunglasses on their website. All shades are eco-friendly, handcrafted from wood and sometimes abalone shells (their Seashell Collection), and is engraved with an inspirational quote to help motivate you to keep going through all life’s challenges. Josh is also committed to donating a portion of all sales to reforestation efforts through their partnership with One Tree Planted and looks forward to supporting mental health awareness non-profits in the future. As Josh says: “Our company was founded by overcoming obstacles and we want to spread that same message to our supporters.”
