Alexandria, VA (March 12, 2008) – The Vision Council of America’s (VCA) Eyewear and Accessories (E&A) Division will for the first time sponsor a free trend presentation during International Vision Expo East for product development and design managers of E&A Division member companies. This exclusive presentation, given by trend expert Ellen Campuzano from the Committee for Colours and Trends, will provide an overview of the spring 2009 fashion trends, along with a sneak preview of fall 2009 trends.

“We are extremely excited to provide our members the opportunity to preview the up and coming fashion trends and enable them to translate these trends into their eyewear collections,” said Jamie Shyer, chair of VCA’s E&A Division. “This is a program we feel is a must for all of our members, and will give them a remarkable advantage with developing their 2009 frame and sunglass assortments.”

Presenter Ellen Campuzano founded the Committee for Colours and Trends over 25 years ago and has traveled to every corner of the globe to cover the major fashion collections, visit trade shows and shop retail. As the only color forecasting, trend tracking, and consulting service in North America for the footwear and accessories industry, the Committee for Colours and Trends services a vast array of fashion and accessory clients.
