"We’re excited to be a part of the 100% Optical 5th year celebration! There are some really strong candidates this year and this is always such a great learning opportunity for our students. We’ll be working with Mazzuchelli and Laes again, and Tom Broughton from Cubitts will be joining us for a masterclass in frame-making. Watch this space!” Flora McLean, RCA

This year, the next generation of young British designers were asked to showcase their talent to an international audience and we want to continue to allow young British designers to be able to showcase their creative flair for next year's show.

In collaboration with the world-renowned Royal College of Art, students were invited to submit designs under a specific brief for 2018.
