ORIGINALS starts to make waves

Since launch in Milan at the start of the month we've been flat out trying to build on the positive reception the collection received. Its been all hands on deck but we now have some great interest from a large number of high street stores interested in stocking the collection. We have been surprised at the level of interest from non optician retailers who want to stock the frames as fashion accessories without prescription lenses. This is great news and increased exposure to our customers is always good news!

We are planning to blog more often now, so look out for more updates and chat in the near future.
Cheers, Mel

ORIGINALS launches in Milan

Massive day for all of us at Originals HQ!
We launched our eyewear collection to the world in Milan yesterday. Massive deal, huge pressure and we nailed it.
We felt it went very well, lots of retailer's are interested in stocking the collection, with some of the biggest names on the UK high street wanting to meet up over the next couple of weeks to discuss the collection.
We launched at a fashion show called MIDO in Milan, as always MIDO was buzzing with thousands of people and everyone looking for the next 'big thing'....and hopefully that will be Originals.

You can follow us on facebook and twitter as well as all our blogs here.
We will be updating everyone over the next few weeks, where thay can buy our Originals frames, so make sure you keep checking and then go out and buy a frame or maybe two!
