My Favourite Shoe
Have you ever wondered what inspires designers in creating their new collections? Ever wondered which shoes of their own design have a special place in the designers hearts? Or even what their work spaces look like?
The ‘My Favourite Shoe’ exhibition currently at Westfield, Shepard’s Bush, London (due to tour soon), delves into the designers psyche. Asking popular designers Camilla Skovgaard, Joanne Stoker, Mr Hare, Sophie Cox and Atlanta Weller what their design process involves and how they come up with such unique ideas. The Shoe Collection at Northampton Museums & Gallery (NMAG) is home to the largest archive of shoes in the world, naturally it is a place of inspiration to designers and students. In the exhibition curated as part of the museums ‘Cinderella Syndrome project- Displaying shoes in museums‘, each designer has chosen a shoe from the NMAG archive along side one from their own collections to illustrate their favourite shoes.
Situated in the luxe The Village in the shopping plaza the monolithic display cases, designed to resemble the designers desks, stand proud and eye catching. Peer inside and discover shoes from the most sculptural to the most comfortable! Read the designer bio’s and interviews and even take part in the ‘photo booth’ where you can record a snap of your own favourite shoes. A fascinating and fun exhibition, but be quick as it is only there 11-29th September.
