London, England, United Kingdom (AHN) – Fashion designer and icon Vivienne Westwood’s unique shoes will be celebrated in a new exhibition held at Selfridges. The display, which launches on Thursday, will feature nearly 200 of the Westwood’s shoes, features shoes taken from both the archive and contemporary collections.
The display, titled ‘Vivienne Westwood Shoes: An Exhibition 1973-2010’ charts the evolution of the iconic British designer’s collection over the last four decades, according to contactmusic.com.
Held in the stores’ Ultralounge space, the exhibition will feature the towering platforms that Naomi Campbell actually wore and fell while wearing them in 1993 and the popular Pirate boots, launched in 1981, still worn by Westwood customers today.
Westwood is also reaching out to young photographers and artists to participate in an online contest for a future exhibition. 100 Days of Active Resistance invites people to submit a photo, slogan or a piece or art which they feel best represents Westwood’s idea of active resistance. The best entries will be featured in the exhibit.
