A talk with Marie Wilkinson

Design Director for the British cult eyewear brand Cutler and Gross, our special guest at Mode and Design Festival

What is the best advice about choosing eyewear?

Marie: 

I think a bold choice of eyewear indicates a certain inner confidence and positive, outgoing outlook, which makes people become drawn to you. It shows you are interested and interesting.

Making glasses is not about us but our customers.  We want to offer them the glasses of their dreams, and to do so, we have to listen to them.  People come into our store and want to talk about glasses, design and styling.  It’s a very social art.  I love that it is something that brings people together.
