“I would describe my spec style as Elegant, vintage and wide-eyed.
I love both the practical, functional side of being able to see more clearly, along with the fashion element in a pair of glasses. They add a sense of sophistication and personality, unlike any other accessory.”
Greer Samuel, 27, Wellington
“I would say my specs style is simple sass!
I love that you can have different styles and they can change a look completely. I absolutely love that you can co-ordinate colours in frames with outfits.
Because I’m studying now and I do a lot of dance/movement in my Performing Arts classes, so I need specs that are practical and that can go with any outfit.
I am really enjoying thicker frames at the moment. I think they look really chic and because I have a rounder face, I feel that bold square shaped glasses frame my face better.”
Stephanie Gardner, 26, Auckland
“I would describe my glasses style as fun! I have a few frames and most are bright colours, funky shapes, or 'out there' styles.
I love to change up a look just by changing my glasses.
I would love to win a year’s supply of glasses – I'm a glasses hoarder as I love all of the styles so much, however some aren't my prescription anymore. I'd love to have a more updated 'glasses wardrobe' and expand what glasses I wear on an everyday basis.”
Rizza B, 28, Wellington
“With glasses, I see everything crystal clear without squinting. Plus, glasses have the added bonus of looking wise with style.
I love the Aviator. Classic, very stylish and looks good on both men and women. it will never go out of style!
It is a special feeling and something to be proud of to be given the opportunity to win. It'll be awesome to win and be able to pick more specs that I can match with my get up on different occasions.”
Joseph Brul, 31, Auckland
“As an operating room nurse, clear vision is really important. Wearing glasses has a been part of my life for a long time and I love them. Aside from the fact that my eyes need them, it’s great to try some new looks too.
I would say that my glasses style is classic, casual and sporty. I always try to match it with my frames to my personality and face shape.
It’s really a big surprise to me to be a finalist, but I love it and I’m hoping to be selected as a winner because I’m a specs enthusiast – I love trying a variety of styles that match my clothing and basically my activity for a certain day. It also reflects my personality or even mood sometimes. I’m dreaming to become an ambassador of specs to do some good purpose for humankind.”
