My 'Eye-catching' Photograph


Oliver Goldsmith Eyewear in the late 1960's

Andrew had asked me to create an 'eye-catching' photograph that was to be used in their displays.

They created eyewear that became an essential fashion accessary, and the previous stigma of wearing glasses ended.

Worn by; Lord Snowdon, Diana Dors, Diana, Princes of Wales, Grace Kelly, Princes Grace of Monaco, John Lennon and Audrey Hepburn plus many more celebrities. Featured frequently in fashion magazines and on the covers of; Vogue, Tatler, Harper & Queen.

The V & A museum have a collection of them on display, and the family business celebrated 90 years in 2016.
