Maarten Weidema - optical personality 2019

Eyewear influencer Maarten Weidema has received the award for International Optical Personality of the Year at the Monaco International Optics Trophies which was held at Espace Léo Ferré in Monaco, France.


After working as a freeline eyewear designer for over 18 years, Maarten chose to replace his drawing pencils for regular writing pens. As a true Don Quichot, he said, he has been fighting windmills of his own, on his “quest to promote and empower independent eyewear brands in this ever-growing market of licensed brands by big box conglomerates.”


Maarten says he will continue on his quest, “with renewed energy, showing you amazing eyewear through breathtaking lifestyle shoots all over the world.”
