Vivienne Westwood for Selfridges
Since making her mark on the fashion industry since way back in the 1970’s Vivienne Westwood’s outstanding shoes have continuously wowed us and consistently been fresh, innovative and inspiring. Westwood is going to be truly celebrated this month at an exhibition held at Selfridges. I would say that pretty much anyone who is a lover of fashion could remember the incident of Naomi Campbell plunging from the platforms designed by the one and only Vivienne Westwood back in 1993.
As of the 26th August Selfridges the famous, luxury London based department store will be playing host to an exhibition dedicated solely to Vivienne Westwood footwear which will be called Vivienne Westwood Shoes: An exhibition 1973-2010. The exhibition itself will be displayed in the Ultra lounge space within Selfridges on the lower ground floor, and will display approximately 200 of the labels footwear creations, taken from both the archive and temporary collections, which include the infamous Super Elevated Gillie Platform that catwalk pro Naomi Campbell couldn’t tackle the catwalk in, the rocking horse and the Pirate boot that is still very popular to this very day. The exhibition is supported by Melissa, which is the shoe brand that Westwood collaborated with on a regular basis, and many of the plastic shoe designs will be displayed at the exhibition. Admission to this exhibition is free and will run up unti 22nd September.
