Safilo hosted its second Women in Optics breakfast during Vision Expo East (16–18 March), which aimed to share inspiration and celebrate the role that women are playing within the industry.
During the breakfast, which took place at Safilo’s New York showroom, key topics included female empowerment within the optical industry and Safilo’s excitement over its upcoming Rebecca Minkoff launch, as well as the company’s support of the next generation of upcoming designers through its Safilo X Parsons programme.
A spokesperson for the company said: “The Women in Optics event was a special occasion highlighting women in the eyewear industry. As in the past, it also marked a special occasion to come together and express support, encouragement and inspiration to each other. It was a wonderful testimony of how far we have come in our journey towards diversity and equality and reminded us that collectively we can strive towards further increasing female representation in optics.”
