words Editorial Staff

Called “the fashion center for eyecare” and “the best optical shop in the world” by attendees, International Vision Expo East 2017 takes fashion-forward to a whole new level with fashion shows, parties, and access to over 5,000 brands and the designers who drive the trends, reminding visitors why Vision Expo is the destination for eyewear visionaries. Visitors are given a glimpse at the latest designer styles and cutting edge designs at the top eyecare event for the Americas, taking place at the Javits Center in New York, NY (Education: Mar. 30-Apr. 2; Exhibition: Mar. 31-Apr. 2).

With five “moving” fashion shows presenting a troupe of models walking the show floor – wearing chic black outfits, wild hair and makeup, and the season’s hottest statement glasses and sunglasses – Vision Expo is bringing emerging designers and boutique eyewear to the forefront all day Friday, March 31, featuring the latest eyewear trends found right in the exhibit hall. Not to be missed, the last fashion show of the day culminates at the Bryant Park Lounge with a champagne toast and eyewear trends presentation from a celebrity emcee.

For the first time, Vision Expo East is bringing attendees a New Designer Gallery offering an elegant and fresh environment for new emerging designers to distinguish themselves in a charming and curated destination in the Madison Square Park Lounge. Representing the individual aesthetic of up-and-coming designers, attendees can find modern silhouettes, colors and textures that offer a fresh take on the latest eyewear trends, designs and collections from designers including IMD SRL, Groover Spectacles, Crossky International, Hillman, Eyevan 7285 and 35/139 Tokyo, among others.

Find everything you need to set your sights on for the future, satisfy your continuing education requirements, navigate a changing healthcare climate, cater to style-conscious customers, elevate your practice and evolve alongside the eyecare industry. See what’s trending at #VisionExpo.
