With a modern contemporary ambience and their hip and friendly staff, Eye Q Optical is all about fashion and having 'the look'. The trendy eyewear company recently partnered with Pulse modelling agency as a sponsor for Caribbean Fashionweek 2012 and Caribbean Model Search.

Offering a very unique item for a market that is becoming increasingly fashionable, Eye Q showcased a line by British Bespoke designer Tom Davies. It created quite a buzz on the catwalk.

When did eyewear become a fashion showpiece? These specs are one of a kind and suited to showcase the personality of the buyer and can be designed by each individual and tailored for the perfect fit. Bespoke glasses take into account every possible facial measurement to ensure that it will fit you like a glove. And who wouldn't want that? Tom Davies' eyewear offers you the ultimate in personalisation and Eye Q Optical is the only practice within the Caribbean to offer this bespoke service.

They have trained consultants who will ensure perfect measurements are made and help you select the best frame shape and colour palette to complement your features. Each Bespoke frame comes with its own set of technical drawings to show you how your frame was made and the details that make them special to you.

The frames are made by block titanium and high-quality Japanese zyls. There are about 50 different plastic colours and about 30 different titanium colours to choose from. Eyewear is now exciting, be bold, 'bespoke' and fuse fashion with function.
