Event – Shoes For Show Exhibition – London

November 7, 2011 § Leave a comment

Location: The Old Truman Brewery, The Loading Bay, Brick Lane, LONDON

Date: 4th-8th November 2011 (ONLY TWO DAYS LEFT)

Prepare for high (heeled) art at Shoes for Show. To those for whom shoes are just an intermediary between your foot and the ground, this free exhibition at the Old Truman Brewery will offer little in the way of cultural insight. But for anyone with even a glancing pedal interest, ‘Javari Presents The Sculptural Art of High Heels’ is well worth dipping a toe into. Curated by Shonagh Marshall, who has archived the collections of Christian Louboutin and Isabella Blow, it features stunning photography and many iconic shoes – including the Vivienne Westwood numbers that famously floored Naomi on the catwalk in 1993.

Christian Louboutin for the English National Ballet

Certain to create a buzz, the exhibition of couture shoes features a plethora of big name designers and owners. From the Gareth Pugh designed cuboid shoes for Beyonce’s Run the World music vid to the Swarovski embellished Christian Louboutin heeled ballet shoes, designed for the English National Ballet, there are some absolutely stunning examples of art meeting footwear featured in the exhibition.
