GET IN THE FRAME 

Last years theme: Past - Present - Future
Eyewear design and make competition using recycled acetate

100% Optical are working alongside RCA for the 8th time delivering the RCA Competition. 

Last year's brief is about reflecting on the past to help us look at each other now and help us see into the future, a more sustainable and a less throw away one. They used acetate materials from an amazing factory in London, Algha on Fish Island in Bow.  

The Eyewear Designs needed to feel good and make us feel good, sexy, attractive and define who we really are. They concentrated on fit, facial types, head measurements and relevant styles based on head size, prescription and context for the wearer and their lifestyle and habits.

All designs had to be made using the recycled acetate.

2023 theme to be announced soon...
