Nicholas Kirkwood, Alice in Wonderland Heel, 2010
Visited the exhibition Shoes for Show- The Sculptural Art of High Heels in Brick Lane. The showcase displays heels as sculptures which were constructed for their beauty and not necessarily their function.
There were some amazing pieces on display! However, this is only natural when combining an elite sqaud of the world’s best footwear designers with the world’s leading fashion houses. Reow, that has me excited! The exhibition was really lovely, with fabulous shoes, and lighting that really showcased the heels at the height of their glory. It’s such an intriguing thought thinking about the future of shoe design and the numerous directions it can go in.
