Paul Taylor's expansive career in optics started from the ground up. Prior to the launch of his designing talents Paul became an Apprentice Optical Mechanic in the late 70's and worked in this field for 9 years. Optical Dispensing was the next path with a 2 year travel adventure experience which took Paul throughout the whole of Europe, Scandinavia, 31 States in the USA and many other regions including Asia, Mexico and Northern Africa. The travel paved the way and provided the confidence to venture into business. Before committing to his own business Paul turned his talents to design. In the midst of designing Paul set out to provide the benchmark for the Optical Retail Industry by creating a boutique showroom for his creations.....Paddington Sydney. It became the place to be seen in Sydney in the early 90's and into the new Millennium. A fun colourful creative shop that was a refreshing overwhelming experience for the eyewear and sunglasses retail shoppers. The Paddington showroom was sold in 2011 with the focus now totally on design.
An acute attention to detail coupled with his technical background means that no element in the design process is left untouched by Taylor himself. Quality and design are paramount, as are the enduring and beautiful materials used to construct each individual piece-all manufactured to his exact standards by manufactures in France, Italy, Germany and now Japan.
