Mairangi Bay, (PressExposure) May 21, 2009 -- Research commissioned by Specsavers, the worldâs fastest growing optical retailer, revealed that many New Zealanders regard glasses as a grudge purchase and hold little interest as to whether or not their glasses enhance their look or make them feel fashionable.*
âGlasses are no longer nerdy or boring; they are definitely seen in the UK and Europe as a key fashion accessory. Kiwis really need to change their attitude towards glasses and Iâm down here to show exactly how to get specs appeal,â said Gok.
Gok Wanâs top tips for great eyewear go well beyond the usual consideration of face shape and include choosing frames and colours to match your complexion, hair colour and style, jewellery selection and make up.
âYou have to consider your whole look when picking out a pair of glasses,â said Gok. âThere are so many amazing frames to choose from these days so make sure you are selecting a style that will work well with the rest of you!â
Specsavers success has been built on offering customers a 2 for 1 deal on all glasses priced $199 and above, all of the time. Specsavers carries over 1000 styles and colours including labels such as Missoni, Jasper Conran, Ben Sherman, Red or Dead and fcuk.
âYou should be able to own several different pairs of glasses, so that you can change them according to your mood or the occasion, just as you have more than one pair of shoes in your wardrobeâ said Gok. âKiwis have a great sense of style but could definitely do with a shake up in the eyewear department.â
