“Julia Gogosha-Clark has an encyclopedic knowledge of eyewear and a knack of finding the perfect pair of specs to suit your style and shape of your face. This is clearly her passion and she really knows what she is talking about. Gogosha Optique has a very unique and extensive selection of frames, all from really cutting-edge European designers. I fell in love with a frame that was way above my price range, but that has not stopped me from fixating on them since then. By the end of the day, I felt humbled and schooled in the art of optical design. If you are looking for unique eyewear, be it sunglasses or prescription, gogosha optique is definitely the place to go.”
Gogosha Optique, Julia Gogosha’s bright, modern, new eyewear boutique on the east side (Silver Lake, Los Angeles) features high-end international designers like Theo, Orgreen, Cutler and Gross, Oliver Goldsmith, Barton Parreira, Mykita, Kirk Originals and Anne et Valentin. Visionary Julia Gogosha Clark fits your frames based on your physical characteristics (i.e., face shape, brow structure, cheek bones, bridge), lifestyle (will they be run over? mangled by dog? flung by babies?), and personality (architecturally minded? sports buff?). She’ll offer up several pairs with proper proportions, but the style is always up to you. Once you’ve picked the winner(s), hand over your prescription, and your specs will be ready in four days to three weeks. But you’ll be feeling glasses half full in no time.

With a personal collection of 80 pairs, Julia Gogosha-Clark knows her frames. Sick of the loud logos that clutter L.A. faces, she’s bringing under-the-radar collections to Silver Lake. Limited-production eye candy includes neon pairs by London label Kirk Originals ($425 to $545) and resurrected 1960s sun styles from Oliver Goldsmith ($360). Good news for eyeglass snobs.
