On January 26, 2017, I attended a release party/mixer for the David Ford Collections, a line of stylish customized eyewear that is based out of Cleveland, Ohio, whose mission is to "Provide fashion products to enhance every visual image."
The party was lit! By the time I arrived at the swanky, intimate Spaces&Co. where the mixer was held, it was already in full swing with models walking around showing off different styles of the glasses, music was going and guests mingled with each other and around the food area and the station where we could try on the luxury frames.
A home grown brand, the eyewear is manufactured right here in Cleveland and I loved how the designer/owner David Ford put on for the city! Hosted by DJ Big Heff, the brand used local models, and had live performances and special appearances by so many local artists and socialites it was a like a small Cleveland entertainment based Who's Who convention lol.
The designer David Ford took the mic and shared with us a little information about himself, the glasses and his business and then introduced a few very special guests for the night including London (Londy) Arrington, a young actress, singer, and model who played a younger version of Cookie Lyon on Fox's Empire television series. Londy will debut her own line of frames for kids under the David Ford Collection entitled "Londywear" in spring of 2017.
It was a great event and I'm glad I went! It made me want to find out more about the brand and I look forward to seeing what they will offer in 2017! What do you think of the glasses? Please comment below, like and share!
