These sunglasses (a dupe of the Alexander Wang for Linda Farrow zipper sunglasses) are a bit fiddly to make, but the results are totally impressive! My tutorial was featured in Free Magazine, the official magazine of Club 18-30.
Those of us stateside may not be familiar with Club 18-30, but for our friends across the pond it’s sort of known as Europe’s version of Club Med (except catering to a younger clientele, hence the name).
My DIY Alexander Wang Sunglasses have been featured in the Summer 2010 issue, which is available in all Club 18-30 destinations from May – October. (Available in 10 countries, including Bulgaria, Crete, Cyprus, Turkey, and Ibiza.)
Unfortunately they spelled my name wrong (there’s no U in it) – but ohwell! A feature’s a feature!
Since I submitted this in February, in the meantime Style Hurricane also DIY’ed her own version using a real zipper around the edge of the sunglasses.
My version is a lot more labor-intensive, but I was going for as exact a copy as possible.:-) Whichever way you go, now these fabulous designer-style sunnies can be yours at a fraction of the price!
