_Vivienne Westwood Shoe Exhibition: A Personal Collection

There is a very intriguing exhibition on at the Civic in Barnsley, opening on Wednesday 13th May 7pm-9pm and running until July 17th. The Exhibition is 'A Personal Collection' of Vivienne Westwood Shoes, spanning 15 years of a love relationship between the collector and the shoes. There are over 75 pairs!!! So if you are a shoe lover like me, come and feast your eyes on the beauties!! Westwood has been forward thinking in her cloth making, but most definitely in her eccentric shoe design . Her influence on generations of latter designers is evident. From the infamous pirate boot to the elevated white-patent stiletto prostitute...these shoes have their very own character! Don't miss out on the chance to witness this array of shoes, never before have there been so many pairs in one place, apart from in the Westwood archive!!! Sorry in advance if you see me being arrested from trying to nick a pair!!! Bx
