On Sunday May 5 2019, the fashion show of the British fashion designer Ozwald Boateng took place in New York. The fashion designer, known for his tailor made suits, presented his latest creations in the exclusive Apollo theatre in New York. He chose Odette Lunettes, the Belgian eyewear brand of Eline De Munck, as an accessory: the models ran the fashion show with an Odette Lunettes on their nose.

Eline De Munck: "Too crazy for words. I had to read the e-mail I received from Ozwald Boateng that he wanted to use our glasses for his fashion show in New York a few times to be sure (laughs). It's really nice to get such a nice compliment from such a renowned designer."

JAMIE FOXX, NAOMI CAMPBELL, IDRIS ELBA AND MORE FAMILIAR FACES AT THE FASHION SHOW.

Ozwald Boateng got Odette Lunettes in his sights, because he had noticed that the British singer Dua Lipa wears an Odette Lunettes. During the fashion show, 60 models - influencers, actors, actresses, famous athletes - walked on the catwalk. Some famous faces like Naomi Campbell, Jessie Williams, Jamie Foxx and even the British actor and director Idris Elba attended the show.
