On Thursday I attended the Specsavers Scottish Press show in Glasgow hosted at BoConcept, a stunning home decor showroom that displays their stunning collection of contemporary and stylish furniture. The event showcased Specsavers recent collaborations with designers such as Moschino, Max&Co, Karl Lagerfeld and Cath Kidston.
There were some seriously beautiful frames on display during the event, with the vintage-inspired Cath Kidston and iconic Moschino collections being my favourite. Specsavers make choosing a new pair of glasses fun and easy, rather than being a time-consuming chore. Yes, glasses are obviously a necessity for many people (including myself) but they are also a fun fashion accessory and a reflection of individual style; Specsavers is one of the few opticians that truly understand this.
As well as an adorable candy buffet cart full of pick ‘n’ mix sweeties, there were delicious plates of brownies, cake pops and savoury hors d’oeuvres from Martha’s, refreshing mocktails and make-up and style tips for matching with the perfect frames. After we were furtherly pampered and entertained we were also sent home with a goody bag filled with even more sweets, mug, USB stick, beauty samples, a Golden ticket (£50 off voucher for a new pair of specs), Cath Kidston playing cards and a ‘Gonnae No’ greeting card by the same illustrator that designed the beautiful window above, make sure to visit her Etsy store at – clairebarclaydraws.etsy.com.
I was so impressed with the designs and colour options available at the event. As much as I love my French Collection glasses, it’s nice to have a couple of pairs to match with different outfits and change your look depending on the season or current fashion trends. Even though my current fashion trend is wearing baby sick all down my back. You get where I’m coming from though and, let’s face it, I’m in more need of a makeover more than ever before!

A much as I love these quirky and attention-grabbing designs, Specsavers have so many designs depending on your style and budget that all come with a scratch-resistant treatment, case and cloth. As someone who’s a little self-conscious when it comes to wearing glasses, I appreciated how genuinely helpful and lovely the Specsavers staff were and I’m really looking forward to spending my ‘Golden Ticket’ on a pair from one of the iconic designers Specsavers stock.
