ringing together women in the optical industry, Safilo’s second “Women in Optics” breakfast kicked-off the second day of Vision Expo East (and St. Patrick’s Day!) in style at its design showroom overlooking Fifth Avenue. Women chatted and had the chance to view various collections from Safilo brands such as Carrera, Dior and Polaroid, plus eyewear designed by students at Parsons School of Design, which was produced by

Safilo. Designer Rebecca Minkoff, whose sunglasses and ophthalmic collections will launch later this year and early next year, respectively, (to be manufactured and distributed by Safilo), welcomed the crowd via a pre-recorded video. A spring-like table set with succulents and greenery created an airy, feminine feel as guests tucked into delicious fare and individually introduced themselves to discuss their contributions and dedication to the optical industry. n
