Gemma and Emma, as SalutingStyle, are the new fashion presenters on the block with an impeccable knowledge of style, from catwalk to high street, and an empathetic and fun approach to helping all women look and feel great.
The collaboration between SalutingStyle and Vision Express will see the girls prove that glasses are a fantastic fashion accessory and advise how to get the most from wearing glasses to match your look. Emma says, "I have to admit I wasn't overjoyed when my latest eye test revealed I needed glasses. But Gemma has taught me that fashion can be great fun and is all about individual style. So rather than think "I need glasses because I am getting older", I am now delighted I have another way to accessorize. Frames are the new fashion!" Gemma adds, "I find it interesting that so many of us, and this includes my celebrity clients, spend ages putting together an outfit with the shoes and the bags and the jewellery and then wear their same-old glasses. Vision Express are unrivalled in their range of frames which means that whatever your budget, you can really simply change your whole look just by altering the glasses you wear."
The collaboration with SalutingStyle will involve the girls bringing their fashion expertise right to the heart of the Vision Express experience; Gemma and Emma will be hosting fashion shows at key Vision Express stores, offering customer advice on their frame choices and guiding staff on how to style for frames. Commenting on the new partnership, Vision Express Chief Executive Jonathan Lawson said, "In the UK we are renowned for having 'a pair and a spare'. However, with a range incorporating over 100 designer and exclusive brands in our portfolio, we have glasses on the high street for all seasons and every occasion."
