"Why are your frames so large?"
"-I´ve always been attracted to unsual eyewear. I thought glasses were an interresting accessory, depending on the shape of your face. People would always ask me "Why are your frames so large?" And I would say "The bigger to see you!" -and that shut them up!"
-Iris Apfel, Eyewear fashion icon

"Glasses - from necessary to accessorie"
"Eyeglasses are a large and growing market all over the world.
Not just because a large part of the population is getting older, and needs glasses to see better. There has also been a great deal of effort to improve the setting for glasses, from manufacturers.
Many fashion brands have in recent years invested in designing frames that match the fashion-to raise glasses as an important accessory."

"Too see or not to see, is no longer the question."
"Today, when glasses are everywhere on humans of all ages, it may be worth remembering that there was a time when glasses were considered a bit shameful. Not least, they were regarded as an erotic killer, especially for women which gave the american author Dorothy Parker a line, 1925: "Men, seldom make passes at girl in glasses". Nowadays, glasses can be compared to lipstick or earrings, a decorative detail in the face that enhances a whole "outfit". This week's program take place in Paris, where last weekend there was a major international spectacle fair, "SILMO". It takes place once a year, and has about 1000 exhibitors and 45,000 visitors looking at glasses and frames from all over the world."
