“THE PROCESS OF DESIGN FROM A CONCEPT TO THE FINISHED PRODUCT IS SO NATURAL FOR ME. COLOUR IS EVERYTHING. I AM INSPIRED BY MY TRAVELS TO THE DEEP BLUE OCEAN…”
Within the environs of the international eyewear industry, Alyson Magee should need no introduction. As co-founder of Face À Face and its creative director for nine years, then a collaborator with Lafont and Alain Mikli (where Mikli introduced Alyson’s first eponymous collection), Alyson has left an indelible signature on the world of eyewear.
Born and raised in Northern Ireland, Alyson graduated from the Royal College of Art in London with a Masters degree in jewellery design. Her choice to engage on a project with Anglo-American Optical was the start of her eyewear career. Alyson moved to Paris originally to work with Mikli and continues to live there now with her family. Most recently designing for some of the world's great couture houses, Alyson now starts her collaborations with Brando. Alyson's use of colour, attention to details and her mischievous architectural twists keep her at the forefront of eyewear design.
