In a world of soulless mass production, C W Dixey celebrates exclusivity and individuality, even today they remain true to their heritage creating eyewear that transends time and style - true classics. All frames are beautifully handcrafted using the best acetate. With fine lines in traditional styles, including the round eye worn by Churchill himself and old school half eyes.
The competition was launched on Friday 9th July and invited people to come into our shop and have their photo taken wearing some designer frames. The idea behind it was to raise the profile of the shop both locally and online, to promote footfall and encourage new visitors to the shop and to generally provide an interesting way to interact above and beyond the usual advertising methods.
Alex was delighted by his win:
I can't believe I won! I think it was a great competition and I look forward to working with Frames in the Lanes as well as enjoying my fabulous prizes
We are 1 year oldWe announced the winner at an event to celebrate Frames in the Lanes first year anniversary which was attended by competition finalists, customers, partners, friends and local media. The judges made their shortlist earlier in the week and were impressed with many of the entrants, some of which came from across Sussex and London.
It was such a fabulous evening - we really can't believe that we are celebrating our first year - huge thanks to all our customers in our first year - we look forward to many more! As part of our celebrations, check out the Frames in the Lanes exclusive Gold Star sale, which started on Monday 31st August.
We were thrilled to be asked to co-sponsor the Winter Pride Fashion Show at Charles Street Bar in Brighton recently. The models sashayed down the runway in array of great outfits including our glasses. Our Funk frames looked particularly great on the cute models.

Stars of stage and screen...
You might have seen us on TV a few weeks ago if you are in the ITV Meridien region. They filmed Frames in the Lanes as part of the launch of a local business initiative 'Business Lifebelt' which offers retailers in Brighton practical support through workshops etc. We were asked to be a case study for the 'Customer Service' workshop and spoke about how important delivering great service is for us - we have lots of new customers through recommendation so feel we could speak with confidence on this.
