Have you ever heard the phrase 'Trunk Show' and wondered what it was?
A trunk show is an in store event where a brand shows its whole collection and you can try on frames with somebody who knows the collection inside out and can help you choose something really special to dress your eyes.
Usually an optician will only carry a limited range from each brand so this is a great opportunity to try on shapes and colours that you might not normally get a chance to try.
With Christmas upon us, 'tis the season to try on colourful eyewear, so some of the best independent opticians around the world are holding in store trunk shows and you still have enough time to get your lenses fitted before the holiday season really kicks in.
Treat your eyes to some glamorous glasses for the Christmas party.
