In the media


Leading Australian Optical magazine Mivision, ran a profile story on the life and work of Paul Taylor in their September issue.  The story was published after the senior writer and editor of the magazine had an intimate lunch in Paul’s studio overlooking Bondi Beach. The article also featured hugely talented designer Karen Walker, who like Paul, has gathered a cult following to her eyewear.


Even Australia’s most prominent art event the Archibald featured a painting of Justice Betty King wearing a Paul Taylor Frame. The painting by Prahran artist Lana McLean has captured the feminine side of a woman who has blazed a trail in criminal law for almost 40 years. Justice King is depicted outside the court in a leopard-print jacket and her famous Paul Taylor cats-eye frames, looking up at Lady Justice.

Michael Hutchence

One of the most iconic photographs of the singer Michael Hutchence, wearing his signature Paul Taylor frames, now hangs in the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra. The famous picture by Harry Borden was taken of Hutchence whilst he was staying at the Paris Ritz at the height of his career. He purchased the frames from Paul Taylor’s store in Paddington and Paul only realised later that one of his favourite artists was wearing his frame.  The frame has now been re-released into the timeless collection.


Most recently the spring issue of Fashion magazine Cleo, featured a story with model Amanda Wear sporting the Doris cats-eye frame in green and purple. The shot was taken at Wiley’s bath showcasing the latest trends for 2012. The frame has been a hit with the fashion set due to its extreme take on the popular shape.
