OPTIFASHION EYEWEAR BOUTIQUE OPENS AT CITY CENTRE MIRDIF
Showcasing exclusive Victoria Beckham eyewear collection and ZEISS Vision Care technology
Dubai, UAE, 27 October 2019: On Thursday 24 October, Optifashion, the leading retailer of luxury and fashion eyewear in the Gulf region, celebrated the opening of its new boutique in City Centre Mirdif, with an event attended by over 100 editors, stylists, influencers and customers.
Guests were treated to a trunk show of the new Victoria Beckham eyewear collection, a brand that is exclusive to Optifashion in the UAE. Designed in-house by Victoria Beckham, and manufactured in Italy by Marchon Eyewear, the collection reflects the minimalist, refined and feminine style of the award-winning designer’s ready-to-wear collection.
Guests were also invited to create 3D avatars of their own face through the unique technology developed by Zeiss and launched in Optifashion. Through the digitalisation of the human face Zeiss can guarantee a perfect lens fitting. In addition, the importance of UV protection was stressed and through a special state-of-the-art UV camera developed also by ZEISS, existing guests’ lenses were tested.
Entertainment was provided by DJ Delia as well as local artist and fashion illustrator Hatty Pedder creating live sketches.
The store puts a luxurious signature on the optical retail industry by incorporating Italian design, organic shapes and cutting-edge display techniques. The concept redefines the optical shopping experience by merging an outstanding fashion environment with the use of unique technology to allow personalised stylist consultation as well as unmatchable medical solutions.

Optifashion, an Italian manufacturer of optical frames and sunglasses established in the early 80’s, was the first in the world to understand that an eyewear is more than a medical device. It is a fashion and luxury accessory.
It was also the first in the world to secure licensing agreements with fashion houses for production as well as distribution of branded eyewear such as Missoni, Laura Biagiotti, Gianfranco Ferre’, Gucci and other top Italian fashion brands.
In the 90’s Optifashion was acquired Safilo Group which, in 2003, became the optical retail project through which Optitalia Group enhances its retail presence and identity in the Gulf region.
