Every March, Studio Optix hosts a much anticipated Trunk Show event with Francis Klein eyewear. Its timing coincides with Betty and Dixie Klein visiting NYC for Vision Expo East, one of our industry’s major trade show events of the year.
Unfortunately, Vision Expo East was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Cancellations of other major trade show events across Europe have had a major impact for independent eyewear designers who rely on these events to see their customers.
While we’re saddened to cancel our event and miss seeing our Francis Klein enthusiasts, we are thrilled to have received the entire new collection (shipped in advance of our Trunk Show). In a Zoom chat, Betty, Dixie, and I discussed the inspiration for this fantastic new collection. Watch this video for a VIRTUAL trunk show presentation. It’s also my first attempt at a Vlog! How’d I do??
