V&A Gears Up For ‘Shoes: Pleasure And Pain’ Exhibition | Fashion News
Following the success of the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibition, London’s V&A museum is gearing up for their next fashionable showcase, Shoes: Pleasure and Pain. Opening on June 13 and running until January 2016, the exhibition will give visitors the chance to see 200 pairs of shoes and boots that encapsulate the “pleasure and pain” slogan. From vintage Christian Dior heels, to embroidered Chinese shoes for bound feet and the infamous Vivienne Westwood heels that caused Naomi Campbell to fall in 1993, the exhibition “will consider the cultural significance and transformative capacity of shoes and will examine the latest developments in footwear technology“.
