Our Story

Our Story

VS Eyewear was established in 2002 by brothers John & Mark Van Staveren. As second generation eyewear professionals, eyewear is in their blood. 
From humble beginnings, established at the rear of a shop in Hastings, and then moving to a double shop around the corner.  The company is now located in our new 300 m² factory in Carrum Downs.
With over 80 years of experience between them, their passion for the industry and strong relationships with international suppliers, John & Mark have built VS Eyewear into a successful company that employs a dedicated team and owns 4 private label brands.
