GET IN THE FRAME 

Past - Present - Future
Eyewear design and make competition using recycled acetate

100% Optical are working alongside RCA for the 7th time delivering the RCA Competition. 

This 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 will be using acetate materials from an amazing factory in London, Algha on Fish Island in Bow.  

The Eyewear Designs need to feel good and make us feel good, sexy, attractive and define who we really are. They will be concentrating 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 must be made using the recycled acetate.
