Companies such as Oakley, Oliver Peoples, etc. are featued guests to this site.

Leight graduated from Los Angeles City College in 1971 with a certified optical degree. After moving down to Laguna Beach for the good surf and hippy lifestyle, Leight found a job managing the first store of the luxury optical chain, Optica. Over a ten-year span, Leight would play a key role in the growth and expansion of Optica stores across the country. In 1986 Leight began to notice a gap in the industry for luxury American eyewear inspired by iconic American and English styled retro frames, particularly manufactured in Japan. His obsession with Hollywood style and the movie industry motivated him to find retail space in Sunset Plaza in the heart of West Hollywood and open Oliver Peoples with his then partners which included his brother Dennis, his now ex-wife Cindy, and friend Kenny Schwartz. Oliver Peoples would quickly become a pioneer in the industry with the introduction of their first collection highlighted by the OP-505 and OP-506. They were unlike anything the industry had seen and the demand for the collection was instantaneous.

The prime retail location lent itself to an A-List clientele that included Elton John, Spike Lee, Jack Nicholson, Madonna, Claudia Schiffer, and many others. This clientele coupled with the introduction of his retro-inspired spectacles gained him international exposure and transformed the perception of glasses in the 20th century. The Oliver Peoples eyewear collections are showcased at the finest retail establishments around the globe, including nine additional Oliver Peoples flagship stores in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Tokyo, and have been featured in the worlds most acclaimed fashion magazines. As chief designer and co-founder of Oliver Peoples, Leight is responsible for positioning Oliver Peoples at the forefront of innovative luxury eyewear. In 1994 under Leight's direction, Oliver Peoples entered a licensing agreement with famed British clothing designer Sir Paul Smith to design Paul Smith Spectacles. Again, Leight's unprecedented design perspective altered the direction of the eyewear industry by developing a multi-layer color lamination process, which popularized a trend in plastic frames that remains true to this day.
