A dedicated eyewear section has been created inside the Council of Fashion Designers of America. It is meant to improve the creativity of the sector with the contribution of experts from the industry such as Robert Marc or Selima Salaun from the eponymous company; Barbara McReynolds and Gai Sherardi from LA Eyeworks; Christian Roth of Optical Affairs; Daniel Silverman from Illesteva; Nathalie Levy and Grant Krajecki from Grey Ant; the famous Larry Light from Oliver Peoples; Patty Perreira from Barton Perreira; and Blake Kuwahara from Focus Group West, who has just launched a line under his own name. Gherardi, Salaun and Kuwahara will be members of the executive board of Eyewear Designer of the CFDA, which will be head up by Roth. The new group will promote collaborations with ready-to-wear designers and joint catwalk shows.
