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.
