Gok Wan has taken the fashion and TV world by storm to become one of the UK’s most sought-after entertainers since his arrival in the British spotlight in 2006. Gok has presented numerous highly-acclaimed, top-rated TV shows, amongst them “How to Look Good Naked” - a concept that was brought to life in Australia a few months ago when Goks tour of naked - but body painted - women hit the streets of Sydney.
Gok has been a Specsavers ambassador since 2007, when he was awarded the prestigious Best Newcomer Award at Specsavers’ annual Spectacle Wearer of the Year awards in London. A winning relationship was born and Gok has hosted the annual extravaganza ever since.
Gok studied performing arts, attending the Charles Keene College of Further Education before moving on to London’s prestigious Central School of Speech and Drama. There he found himself drawn to the backstage world of hair and make-up, prompting his entrée into the fashion industry. Feeling dissatisfied with beauty alone, Gok decided to pursue his love of clothes as a fashion stylist. Since then Gok has dressed many celebrities, his work has been published internationally in several publications, including Tatler, Glamour, Sunday Times Style, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, The Face, and The People and he has worked with several renowned photographers.
He has written three successful style books as well as penning his own best-selling autobiography “Through Thick and Thin”, in which Gok addresses the challenges he faced growing up. As well as fronting several high profile advertising campaigns and developing his own range of underwear, beauty products - and glasses, Gok is a relentless supporter of numerous charities.
In 2009 aqnd 2010, Gok appeared in NZ for Specsavers and took the media by storm - charming fashion editors and journalists across the country with his infectious personality and charm and cheeky sense of humour.
This year, he’s touring with Westfield, bringing his styling flair to everyday Aussies and promoting his very own GW for Specsavers range. Now, everyone can have a little Gok in their lives when his first Eyewear collection, exclusively designed for Specsavers, hits our stores!
