Fan­tas­tic sun­glasses and fab­u­lous frames en­sured our Au­gust fashion shoot was quite a spec­ta­cle

EDP Norfolk - - FASHION -

Glasses are no longer just func­tional, they are a style state­ment. They can be el­e­gant, or fun, time­less or very much on trend – as our lat­est fashion shoot with lo­cal in­de­pen­dent op­ti­cians Ce­cil Amey shows.

And who bet­ter to model the stun­ning range of eye­wear than Ce­cil Amey owner Emma Amey’s fab­u­lous book club ladies.

It is the re­gion’s largest in­de­pen­dent op­ti­cians, with nine busy prac­tices across – eight of which are in Nor­folk in Norwich, Wrox­ham, Dere­ham, Wy­mond­ham, At­tle­bor­ough, Wat­ton, Aylsham and Har­leston.

As well as hav­ing a team of highly qual­i­fied op­tometrists, op­ti­cians and op­ti­cal assistants of­fer­ing tai­lored and per­son­alised ad­vice, Ce­cil Amey also stocks a huge range of eye­wear, in­clud­ing de­signer frames, glasses, sun­glasses and sports. Brands in­clude Tom Ford, Chanel, Ray Ban, Moscot and Cazal. It also pro­vides contact lenses and ac­ces­sories, spe­cialised sight re­lated clin­ics and a full hear­ing care ser­vice.

The idea for the shoot was the brain­child of Emma, who wanted to fea­ture re­al­is­tic rep­re­sen­ta­tions of women of a cer­tain age group who like to wear stylish eye­wear. She said who bet­ter to model for the day than the 12 beau­ti­ful, in­de­pen­dent, strong women who make up her book club – and much fun en­sued.

Clothes for the day were pro­vided by an­other well known Norwich in­de­pen­dent busi­ness, Gin­ger, which is part of the Hat­ters and Jonathan Trum­bull group.


For the book club mem­bers, make-up artists Christa Ellis and Katie Barnes cre­ated a very nat­u­ral look but tai­lored this for glasses wear­ers. They used MAC Stu­dio Face and Body Foundation, which de­liv­ers sheer, build­able cov­er­age and a satin fin­ish, Char­lotte Til­bury Hol­ly­wood Bronzer and nat­u­ral blush and nat­u­ral lip colours.

The eye shadow from MAC was kept sub­tle as, ad­vises Christa, lenses can some­times mag­nify the eye and colour. The look was fin­ished with Boots No.7 Mas­cara. The eye­brows, de­fined with a MAC pen­cil, were made to look stronger to frame the glasses.
