Nathanael Wenger, Hall of Frames Director, presented the citation to Jason Kirk. Wenger said: “We congratulate the winners and thank all of our entrants. The opticians had a challenging time selecting the winners with the diverse range of styles, creativity and materials. We wish everyone a bright future.”  Kirk commented: “Karen and I want to thank Hall of Frames, Eyestylist and the opticians for this opportunity. Our concept is to create frames that are a bit different, yet very wearable.” www.kirkandkirk.com
