Born and raised in Northern Ireland, Alyson graduated from the Royal College of Art in London with a Masters degree in jewellery design. Her choice to engage on a project with Anglo-American Optical was the start of her eyewear career. Alyson moved to Paris originally to work with Mikli and continues to live there now with her family. Most recently designing for some of the world's great couture houses, Alyson now starts her collaborations with Brando.
Alyson's use of colour, attention to details and her mischievous architectural twists keep her at the forefront of eyewear design and it is with great pride and pleasure that Brando's dream team unveil her eponymous eyewear collection.
