Customers around the Shop: Morgan

Morgan seems to brighten up the grey days in her new Andy Wolf glasses! The refined retro-styling keeps the look funky and edgy, while maintaining versatility. We like what this soft, silvery-grey tone does to enhance her eye color too. 
Great choice, Morgan!

Getting to know your EOF Optician: Emily B.

How Long with Eyes on Fremont:
Emily has been a part of the EOF family for 2.5 years, joining the crew while in the midst of her Opticianry program degree at Seattle Central. She graduated & obtained her license in 2014! 

Her EOF “Specialty”: 
Although Emily is a skilled “front-end” optician, she really enjoys working on the lab/production side of things as well. She splits her time in the shop doing lens finishing work, repairs, sunclip production, and dispensing/adjusting.  Emily prefers to exercise her “tactile” skills wherever she can in the shop!

What motors Emily’s interests & what keeps her happily “scooting” along:

Emily balances work & play really well- engaging herself off the clock with the light-hearted, the off-beat, the creative & quirky things in life.  
She finds interest in collecting natural “oddities”, fun & colorful trinkets, & is a fetishist for Hello Kitty paraphernalia.  If she’s not scootering around town, she probably is chilling out crafting or sewing cool things like hand-bags & vintage-inspired items. She prefers and appreciates the “old-school way” for her art process & aesthetics.
The bottom line with Emily is to approach life with a little sense of humor & fun!

Here’s the newest from German eyewear designer CONQUISTADOR… and the man behind it

Fall time is when a steady stream of the freshest models from Silmo Paris Expo arrive, and we have lots on their way! 

One of the 1st vendors to hit the frame wall is a long time EOF staple collection, Conquistador.

Hans Joachim-Marwitz has been the owner/purveyor of Conquistador since 1970 and has a small design /sales team that is mostly made up of family members, including his sons.  After over 4 decades, Hans still comes to the optical trade shows! His friendly, kind demeanor is part of what seals his long time relationships with return clients, like us. 🙂

We love his passion for traveling: it is something that keeps Hans inspired. 
Check out his frame catalogue and website online which are modeled after his traveling photo albums:

 The Conquistador collection maintains a contemporary styling with some fun color accenting & interesting detail, but present an overall fashionably versatile aesthetic.

Getting to know your Favorite EOF Optician: Jennifer!

How Long with Eyes on Fremont:

Jennifer has “graced” the front stage of Eyes on Fremont since 2011, but has been a staple in the Seattle Eyewear scene for over 2 decades! She has a lot of experience under her belt- from working alongside her father who is a long time local optometrist, to owning her own optical business, she’s a local favorite in the game. She has been a licensed optician since ’91… Boom!

Her EOF “Specialty”: 

 Jennifer has a natural born talent that is covetable to the Optical world- a rare gift of sincerely expressing her honest style opinions while weaving in technical optical knowledge. She gets right to the point and is always on point with what style best suits every face… An oracle and inspiration bringer of glasses! On top of that, she is basically the quintessential model for the iconic cat-eye look!

What’s cooking in the life of one of Seattle’s Infamous Opticians:

When Jennifer isn’t in the shop, dazzling & charming every person who walks in the door for a new set of cool eyewear, she is a busy kick-ass mom, wife, & kitchen aficionato! She effectively channels her Julia Child skills to keep her two daughters and husband well fed & happy, while maintaining her forever-young-at-heart enthusiasm for the music scene… a devout fan of the 80’s era alternative rock scene. Yup, she was grunge before you knew grunge was cool! 
Jennifer is always planning the next sunny relaxation trip with the fam and is currently enjoying training her new puppy, Kitten!
