“Shoes must have very high heels and platforms to put women’s beauty on a pedestal” - Vivienne Westwood
I am so amazingly excited to say that this weekend i visited the Vivienne Westwood shoe exhibition in The Bowes museum.
The exhibition showcases over 40 years of design.
The shoes were A-MAZ-ING!
I love how her designs are so unique and distinctive. Her attention to detail and ability to make a shoe a piece of art work in its own right astounds me.
Without further ado here are a few of my fave pieces from the exhibition.
A Louis Vuitton and Vivienne Westwood collaboration, wow!
Look at that heel, So high it needs a flat circular 'stand' at the bottom.
Yes, that is what you think it is on the front of the shoe, would you expect any less from a shoe entitled 'Penis shoe'?
You couldn't have a Vivienne Westwood exhibition without tartan, right? These certainly are a fabulous pair of shoes
I adore this pair, the purple and yellow with the pewter colour just won me over big time!
How amazing are these?
These shoes are definitely the best mens shoes in the exhibition as far as i was concerned.
And finally, the pair of shoes everybody envisages when you hear 'Vivienne Westwood shoes'.
The notorious sky high platforms that sent one of the most well known models, Naomi Campbell, falling to the floor on the catwalk in Paris in 1993.
Which were your favourite shoes?
I absolutely adored the exhibition, so striking and inspiring.
If you get the chance to go i urge you to do so, you will not regret it at all.
