Milan: The glasses capital of the world

Milan: The glasses capital of the world

Posted on 06th March 2012

This weekend Ian, Heather and Gillian are jetting off to the annual MIDO glasses frames conferences in Milan. MIDO takes over 6 huge pavilions of Fieramilano, one of the largest exhibition centres in the world.

Every major frame designer in the world exhibits at MIDO and we’re hoping to find some of the latest styles and bring them back to the UK. It’s a long way to go but we want to continue our reputation for stocking some of the best frames you can find anywhere and travelling so far means we’ll find things no one else can.
