Visique Introduces Nicole Farhi Eye Wear To NZ


Media Release
12 December 2001

Visique Introduces Top London Designer, Nicole Farhi Eye Wear To New Zealand

The latest in high fashion frames from London and New York, Nicole Farhi Eyewear is now available for the first time in New Zealand, exclusively through Visique Optometrists.

Nicole Farhi, one of London's leading fashion designers, bases her design philosophy on comfort and relaxation with an emphasis on soft structure and subtle colouring that is certainly echoed in her newly released optical range. Appealing to young at heart professional women, Nicole Farhi Eyewear delivers feminine modern frames in delicate designs and colours. French-born Algerian fashion designer, Nicole Farhi launched her own label in 1993 and is known for her sensual, luxurious and classic designs. Farhi opened her first store in Harvey Nichols in 1993 and opened a boutique in New York in 1994. In 1999 she expanded her New York flagship store to include a restaurant and home furnishings, an addition to the womenswear and menswear lines which are already successful in the New York crowd.

Visique is a nationwide network of independent optometrists offering professional eyecare and stocking many of the world's top fashion brands in optical frames and sunglasses.
