Calling all sight-challenged fashionistas (that includes you sharply dressed boys, too). And no, it's not an oxymoron, for even the most glamorous of Hollywood stars wear glasses.
Ask Allyn Scura, award winning, Sonoma County eyewear designer and provider of Vintage eyewear to the jet set - the perfect pair of vintage or custom designed frames are the way forward for the truly meticulous trend setter and classic looker, alike.
Here's an inside scoop for my fellow Southern SoCou's - Allyn Scura Eyewear is opening its Sonoma County Studio to the public for its first trunk show on Saturday, March 26th.
Mark your calendar and go see and try on thousands of eyeglass frames of vintage and original designs. It's a treasure trove of spectacle sparkle. Take your favorite frames home at special trunk show pricing.
Where: Allyn Scura Eyewear Studios, 99 Sparks Road, Sebastopol, CA 95472. From 10 am to 4 pm, 3.26.2011, one day only.
Scura has over 70,000 vintage frames and her own unique designs to share with her adopted Sonoma County Community. Her company is the premier source for authentic vintage and antique eyewear and original eyewear that has frequently been worn in the movies (Sin City, Dream Girls and more) and in national tv commercials by numerous celebrities, including the likes of Brad Pitt, Cindy Crawford, Elton John, Goldie Hawn, Rosanna Arquette.
Allyn Scura Eyewear began in 1988 when Scura started purchasing and distributing original, unused antique and vintage frames. Virtually all of Allyn Scura Vintage Eyewear frames are 'new-old-stock,' which means they've never been worn. In 1993, realizing that unused vintage eyewear is a finite commodity, Allyn began designing her own line of eyewear and in 1999, Target stores selected her designs to represent their premier line of ophthalmic eyewear nationwide.
The west country eyewear company is the leading eyewear provider of vintage ophthalmic brands from around the world, including: American Optical, ArtCraft, Barbudo, Bay State, Bausch & Lomb, Blue Ribbon, Century, Continental, Cottet, Criss, Flair, Foremost, Graceline, Imperial, Jason, Kelley & Hueber, Liberty, Marine, May, MB, Paris Eyewear, Pathway (POP), Rodenstock, Saphira, Seythoux, Sherman, Shoreham, Shuron, Styl-Rite (SRO), Swan, Swank, Tart, Tura, Universal, Univis, US
Optical, Victory, Zylite, Zyloware and more.
You'll find vintage fashion brands such as Alpina, Anglo American, Armani, Balenciaga, Pierr Cardin, Carrera, Cartier, Oleg Cassinin, Cazal, Chanel, Liz Claiborne, Oscar De La Renta, Christian Dior, Courreges, Dunhill, Givency, Oliver, Goldsmith, Gucci, Emmanuelle Khanh, Lanvin, Ted Lapidus, Ralph Lauren, Persol, Playboy, Porsche Design, Emilio Pucci, Ray Ban, Yves Saint Laurent, Silhouette, Tura,
Diane Von Furstenberg, Vuarnet.
The designer was raised in Southern California and studied interior and product design at Parsons School of Design in New York City. Scura and her family moved to Sebastopol so that their daughter could attend Sebastopol Independent Charter School. That's good enough reason alone to spread word of Allyn Scura Eyewear's accessibility to Sonoma County style hounds. Keep the faith! And see clearly where you're going in the meantime.
