Couture Buffalo Horn by TD Tom Davies wins Optician Awards’ Frame of the Year 2011
Tom Davies has been awarded Frame of the Year by the Optician Awards during the British optical exhibition Optrafair. The highly regarded British industry accolade comes just three months after the launch of Tom Davies Natural Horn, an innovative luxury service for couture buffalo horn frames, which breaks the boundaries of traditional horn spectacle production.
Tom Davies, CEO of the British luxury brand said: “It is a tremendous honour to win recognition at this level in the UK. Our natural horn service is a major achievement for our company, and we are now in a new phase of expansion in our workshop as a direct result of the success of our bespoke and couture collections. Our horn products are produced at the highest level, using state-of-the-art equipment that we have adapted ourselves for incredible results in the final designs. We have also honed our expertise in hand finishing and polishing the horn, taking the material to a completely new level.”
TD Tom Davies Natural Horn is an exclusive service for custom-made spectacles and sunglasses, involving the customer who is able to choose the pieces of horn from which their frame is produced. Each frame is designed and measured for the individual according to their face shape, head size and aesthetic requirements. With a contemporary take on a traditional material, TD Tom Davies shows its innovative spirit by producing horn in a new light, with clever details and beautiful curves. Horn and titanium are brought together in a number of unique designs which perfectly illustrate the technical achievements of this exceptional collection.
