Events - The Gok Wan for Specsavers Launch

On Monday I was lucky enough to be invited to the Gok Wan for Specsavers Launch in Cardiff. And the man himself was going to be there to style a few competition winner and show off his new line of frames. Being a big fan of Gok's of course I jumped at the chance to go. He has shown women that you don't had ego be skinny to be beautiful and that feeling feminine, confident and sexual is far more important.
Here are a few press images of the line - they will be available nation wide from the 18th March and will be on 2 for 1! They are £99 a pair (or for 2 in this case) with PENTAX lenses included! That's a pretty good bargain if I am honest. He said how he wants his line to be affordable for all and available to the masses. So joining up with Specsavers was the best way to do this as they are the number 1 eye wear sellers in the UK and in many other countries.
And here is me! And what I wore!
Dress: Fearne Cotton c/o
Cardigan: Vinatge via charity shop
Shoes: NewLook
Tights: Random
Hairband: Random from Canada
Bangles and Necklaces: Random, Vintage and Dorothy Perkins

Some of the range on display
I really liked these! They are so strong and powerful looking.

Gok and me - possibly the worst shot of me ever! Typical!
And me trying on some of my favourite from the new line.
Pair 1: I think their a little too big
Pair 2: They were a lilac colour but feel a bit granny-ish on me
Pair 3: These are my favourites! I am contemplating getting them as I am looking for new glasses anyway, but Jon isn't a fan.

After styling all the competition winners and having a quick chat with a few press people Gok came down for a chat with the blogging girls that were there. And we got to have a great Q&A session with him, which they filmed for his You Tube and Facebook page (so you will see me pop up on there in a few weeks time)

Although we talked about the glasses range we also discussed his fashion line, his inspirations, his new TV shows, his feelings towards bloggers and the globalisation of fashion. He was very nice and friendly (not stuck up because he is a celebrity) and happy to talk to bloggers as he sees us an important part of fashion development and the success of new brands and lines.
from l-r: competition winner, Lianne of Bee1BlogQueen , Me, Gok, Laura of Side Street Style and my sister Briony. Louise from Lou Lou Muses, Gemma from Fat Frocks and Emily from Sugar and Spice were also there.
This is Julie-Anne one of the competition winners (who I had a nice chat with) having her consultation with Gok.
And this is her with her new Gok Wan glasses - he advised her to go with tortoise shell frames in a slightly large size than she usually wore and I think they look great on her. What do you think?
Gok Wan: Made in China airs tonight on Channel 4 at 8pm at looks at the manufacturing lines in China and his own chinese roots.

What are your opinion on Gok Wan? Are you a fan?
