Were you at the show today? If not, why not? Well do not fret, I have been here all day and will be until Tuesday. As the 100% Optical official blogger it is my duty to bring you the highlights (but obviously they will be my opinions). I have been going on about it since last year and it is finally here and I am excited to be here. Tired, but excited. The first part of the day was spent familiarising myself with the exhibition space and I kept getting lost. Then it was the first fashion show at 12pm, a bit of blogging and another fashion show at 2pm with Hugo being one of the models.
Then finally after more blogging I was able to actually have a chat with some of the exhibitors which was lovely. I wanted to see how they got on since it is the first ever London show and all the feedback has been positive. All said its been a busy day for them and orders have been taken which is great news for us consumers because that means we will be getting new frames in our local opticians. WIN!
So, MyGlassesAndMe highlights for day one of 100% Optical… here it goes. First of all it has to be the fashion show for me, down at the fashion hub and it really was so cute that Hugo was shy about modelling. Then it was the 3D printing stand- truly fascinating and finally I came across an eyewear brand called Lupo.
If you want to read about Hugo down the catwalk then click here otherwise here is what I have found out about 3D printing. I was genuinely fascinated by the machine that produces them and you can make anything you want at the click of a button. You can design your own frame, scan your face in and design something that suits OR just buy the machine because it is so damn cool. Yes it may set you back couple of thousand but hey IT IS COOL! Lol.
Then as I was walking around chatting to different exhibitors all the vibes have been so positive, everyone has had a really great first day. The eyewear brand that caught my eye today was called Lupo. Why? Simply because they design frames that suit the petit face so basically that means anything smaller than the average size of around 52. All the designs are cool and edgy so if you have a petite face then you no longer have to buy children’s frames and feel unfashionable because of it. The company that distribute Lupo also do a brand SLR. Some of these frames are actually covered with fabric! Pretty cool, more on those coming soon!
