Everyone is wearing cat-eye glasses today, and it turns out this fashion trend was founded by Altina Schinasi — an artist and a daughter of Jewish immigrants.  Repost from @kvellercom: The story goes like this: It was the 1930s and Altina Schinasi — artist, daughter of Jewish immigrants, single mother of two — walked past an optical store in her hometown of New York. There was a painting in the window, and on it, glasses frames that Tina thought were truly hideous, like something out of the “time of Benjamin Franklin.” ⁠
⁠
She remembered that famous Dorothy Parker line — “men seldom make passes at girls who wear glasses” — and like the true ingenue that she was, thought to herself: I could do better than this.⁠
⁠
“Surely, there must be some way to design eyeglasses that could be attractive! What looks good on a face? What adds to a face? What could a woman wear on her face that would be romantic?” she wondered.⁠
⁠
For the first time, somebody was thinking about how women deserved to feel good in the glasses that they wore — to look attractive, sophisticated, beautiful, to see and be seen confidently.⁠
