If you’ve ever wandered past Quinn Eyeworks and been drawn to the extraordinary artistry on show, read on.
Less of a high street optometrist’s store and more a curated gallery of the world’s leading eyewear designs, with a drool-worthy line of unique and limited edition pieces on display.
It’s a family affair too, headed up by Patrick Quinn and his two sons, James and Nick, who man the Mt Hawthorn branch of the family business.
If Patrick’s a familiar figure, there’s a good reason for that. He was a well-known member of the Leederville business community, with eyewear store Blink 138 a firm favourite among local shoppers for many years.
Making the move to Subiaco and the light filled eyewear gallery he now calls home was a significant move for Patrick and sons, who between them have over 76 years’ experience in the eyewear profession.
“Many of our products are handmade from very small producers, many of whom are personal friends,” says Patrick.
You’ll find eyeglasses from Japan, the US, Germany and even items designed by Patrick himself.
Now in his 42nd year in optics, Patrick’s reputation for a purveyor of excellence has spread far and wide.
“We always try to procure limited handmade pieces that that are extremely limited world-wide.”
Quinn Eyewear, 9/44 Station St, Subiaco.
