Eyewear Exhibition Fashion Space Gallery

I helped select frames for and curate Framed! Contemporary Eyewear in Fashion, one of the first exhibitions to explore the cultural significance of eyewear.

Held at the Fashion Space Gallery in London from 12 September – 3 November 2012. The exhibition depicted eyewear’s historical progression from the mid-twentieth century through featuring more than 100 frames from private collections, fashion houses and bespoke ateliers.

Through an archival of film and photography, this retrospective celebrated the role of spectacles in fashion imagery, music and pop culture. The space will also showcase catwalk collaborations and new experimental prototypes including the Cutler and Gross archive and collaborative runway collections with Erdem, Giles and Thomas Tait

 

Launch of Cutler and Gross Bespoke

The Cutler and Gross bespoke service and suite was launched at an exclusive opening with clients, press and influencers.

The Lacquered Room housing four thousand frames, dating back from 1969 to present, was unveiled as guests enjoyed champagne and Japanese food from neighboring Zuma. Guests were given a pair of Cutler and Gross reading glasses and invited to come back to experience the bespoke service and have the frame filled with prescription lenses.  

Celebrating Cutler and Gross Design Director Marie Wilkinson at the V&A

Organised and managed a party for Cutler and Gross design director Marie Wilkinson, celebrating her 30 years working for the company. The party was held at London's V&A Museum, and included an archive of Cutler and Gross's collections from Marie's 30 years with the brand. 

Getty photographed the event, attended by key influencers, architects, designers, media and loyal Cutler and Gross clients. A film was produced in collaboration with Cultureshock Media, presented by acclaimed art critic Ossian Ward.
