Despite the rising popularity of round eyeglasses, a lot of people do not know much about the past of the industry. We hope this will change.
A long time ago a man named Heinsberg was contacted by a company and asked to create a new concept. After building the idea, the product was patented and went on to be very successful.
At this time, Heinsberg declared that the next concept he created would be patented under his own name. This led to a set of great inventions. He had a number of unique ideas which had not yet been discovered.
This seemed like it would work. It was clearly easier for individuals to sell than a second round eyeglass frames pair. Eventually, he realized that there had to be changes with the retro eyeglasses. Things don't always go well right away.
At this time, he went back into his home with new thoughts. He said that he was making a pair of boots one day and he thought he could just drill right into the round eyeglasses. That is the story of his new patent. Keep up with Kate West for more on round eyeglasses.

Most people don't know about the history of vintage eyeglasses companies. This is shame given all of the great information that is out there.
There is a lot more interesting information about vintage eyeglasses than most people know about. In particular, the vintage eyeglasses company American eyewear is one that you should know about. They have really been a pioneer in the eyeglasses frames, although they are not given the prestige they should have.
American Eyewear was founded years ago and is more profitable than ever. The reviews for these vintage eyeglasses are always great. Even companies such as Prada eyeglasses are aware of this company.
The company was started by a man named David. When the David graduated, he realized he had a gift for eyewear. After he left school, he realized he was most interested in vintage eyeglasses, and within a few years, he had built and expanded his company.
It is amazing to see what he has built. From the day he started the vintage eyeglasses business, his philosophy has remained constant. Stay tuned to Kate West for more information and updates on vintage eyeglasses.

The designer eyeglasses industry has never been so competitive. Christian Dior glasses needs to keep up with larger and smaller companies:
With larger companies such as Prada eyeglasses, Christian Dior need to continue to grow its brand.
Some new competition may be on the heels of Christian Dior eyewer. This is coming from particularly from smaller companies. The Christian Dior eyewear rival TC Charton is marketing itself specifically to Asians. This is an interesting strategy to take. The launch for the competitor was held in the big apple, and was able to bring in quite the crowd. The city seems to house some incredible designers. Christian Dior glasses can not be happy about this. Either way, follow Kate West to stay up to date with Christian Dior glasses news.

Interested in what’s happening in the eyeglasses frames world?
Most recently, a line was created just for Asians. I really think this collection is going to exceed expectations. This company isn’t very large, but I think they should be watched out for.
The founder of the company is TC Charton, and the creator Alexandra Charton is a rising star in the eyewear industry. The designer eyeglasses line is particularly interesting because it is designed with Asian-Americans in mind and targeted specifically to those who want to be fashion oriented. Alexandra Charton, knows firsthand what a daunting experience one must go through due to the scarce selection available to Asian consumers. Thus inspired, after almost two years of trial and error, in the Fall of 2009, TC Charton Asian Fit Eyewear was born. The founder really wanted the designer eyeglasses collection to be for Asian-Americans of all ages.
I'm not 100% sure how this collection will resonate although I am are certainly rooting for the company. I have not heard how these will fit on Caucasians, even though it was not designed to do so. I'm definitely curious and we will let you know when I find out.
The company is betting a lot on this line. This collection consists of 19 styles of ophthalmic frames and 14 sunglasses, TC Charton is the first collection that is entirely and ergonomically designed with Asian Americans in mind. Every eye shape, every detail, and the selection of exquisite color palette was created and aimed to compliment the uniqueness of Asian features and skin tones, and to capture the harmonious balance between memorable styles with optimum functionality. From overseeing designs to manufacturing, Alexandra has in-depth technical knowledge. She has more than 16 years of extensive optical experience in the creations of countless leading European eyewear brands. Follow Kate West on Twitter or Facebook for more designer eyewear news.
