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!
congrats 🙂 Great DIY but involves a lot of work 😀 And precise work!
Just to let you know I won't be one of those “friends” that become mysterious “sources” of “insider secrets”. You know when you get really famous… !!
[and not that I know anything, I'm just being silly!]
This is fabulous honey!! I'm really 'proud'* to see all this. I can see how hard you work and I like seeing these 'recognition rewards'.
…I'm sure even Martha Stewart got spelled with 'u' at first!!
*proud sounds possesive and a bit condescending but I hope you know what I mean by this.
loving these sunglasses! alot of work but worth it. very stylish!
