This month we look at a different aspect of optometry - eyewear trends through the ages. Following on from London Fashion week, Neil Handley, Curator of the College Museum, discusses the history of spectacles with Daniel, exploring their unique status as a medical device and fashion accessory. Neil also talks to Senior Tutor in Footwear Accessories and Millinery at the Royal College of Art, Flora McLean, together with two of her design students, Rebecca and Ely, about the annual RCA Frame Design Competition and possible future trends.
