Here is next season’s ‘must wear’ for anyone with specs—designed by a four-year-old from east London who has her eye on a future in ophthalmic design when she grows up.
Little Sasha Formosa has scooped her first award in a charity competition to design a pair of glasses.
“Sasha was so excited when she heard she was a winner,” proud mum Alison Formosa said.
“She loves anything to do with colouring and crafts, so the competition was perfect for her.”
The creative Year 1 pupil from Old Ford Primary school fought off tough competition with her design to clinch one of five prizes up for grabs in a nationwide contest by Scrivens opticians. All proceeds are going to Alzheimer’s Society.
