After attending the Zoe Jordan show at London Fashion Week on Friday, I decided to to view the latest instalment at Fashion Space Gallery called Framed! Contemporary Eyewear in Fashion at London College of Fashion. The exhibition space regularly changes and previously showed one about fashion illustrations and the other on New Fashion Interventions in Materials and Techniques which I did a post on a while back.
If you’re a fan of sunglasses then this exhibition is for you and its free to view and take pictures. The exhibition explored the most popular accessory and its cultural significance in society starting from the mid-twentieth century till the present day (a timeline was displayed to illustrate this). Over 200 sunglasses were on display from the iconic cat eye to luxury brands including Versace. I have posted up a few sunglasses that really stood out for me and the rest can be viewed on my Facebook page. Will be doing a LFW report at the end of the week so stay tuned for that.
The cat eyes and look sunglasses are my favourites
