Vivienne Westwood Shoe Exhibit in Beirut

Two months ago, I read on some website that the Vivienne Westwood shoe exhibit would be going on a world  tour. Beginning in Moscow then heading to Beirut before going to other cities. I've been a big fan of her work for a while now, so when I heard that her shoe exhibition would be coming to Beirut, I was very excited. Due to annoying university work, I couldn't make it to the opening of the exhibit at Sursock Palace, but I did manage to catch it on the last day with my mother dearest :)

Super Elevated Gillie "Anglomania" S/S 1993

"The Vivienne Westwood Shoes exhibition received high success as it debuted in London last year, so much so in fact, that the designer has decided to take the footwear feast on a world tour.
The exhibition showcases over 40 years of the Dame’s designs, and is set to preview in Moscow and Beirut before travelling to County Durham, UK, in June this year.

It will be celebrating all things unique and creative, from her signature Pirate boots to the Rocking Horse shoe and the Super Elevated Gillie – you know, the pair Naomi Campbell famously took a tumble in after she wore them down the catwalk in 1993.

 The exhibition will be visiting Japan, New York and China, running from June 10th till July 10th 2011."
