Quite a spectacle

Optician Ian Silverberg fitting glasses on a mannequin

Ian Silverberg from Silverberg Opticians was faced with a tough customer today. This fussy client only wears the finest vintage designer clothing and was looking for a fine pair of glasses to match. They don’t even have bad eyesight – they really only want some spectacles as a fashion accessory.

The customer in question is actually one of the mannequins in the textile conservation studio that are being prepared for a new display of designer clothing in the Craft and Design gallery at the Walker. The display is due to open in December, watch this space (with or without your glasses) for more details nearer the time.
