After a couple of months of renovations, and some touch ups still to be finished, Dresden Vision opened on Saturday, October 13th @733 Queen St E! Dresden Vision is an Australian founded, German-inspired optical store and the Riverside location is their second shop in Toronto.
Specializing in interchangeable, durable, lightweight, and recyclable material, Dresden Vision can make your vision come to life in their on-site lab with frames starting at only $49. They have frames made of trash, made of money, and of course, plastic ocean waste!
Dresden Vision offers four frame sizes and four arm lengths to find the perfect fit – all using pre-moulded parts from Australia. Frames are offered in 16 regular colours, with a selection of funky and original experimental colours from their “blackboard menu” created from excess colour wastage.
Finding inspiration through German values of design and manufacturing where there is a central focus on the relationship between product and customer, the vision for Dresden is brought to life – making the glass-wearer the centre of everything. But Dresden not only cares about the customer but also about the environment and the community where it is involved. You can just drop by the shop and talk to Mike Murray, the owner, and you’ll see he’s simply passionate about it.
He is also looking forward to partner with other local businesses, so if you are looking for some collaboration, get in touch!
