People who have saved this event:



This exhibition celebrates the ingenuity and creativity of British fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, focusing on her designs of the ultimate fetish object: the shoe. Visitors have only one month to catch this prestigious international exhibition before it then travels to Japan, New York and China. The exhibition will be displayed in the museum's new Fashion & Textile Gallery and will showcase around 200 shoe designs and trace the exceptional success of Dame Westwood's career to date. Illustrating her defiance of the rules of wearability and convention, the exhibition is also evidence of her uncompromising quest for superb craftsmanship and attention to detail.
