I feel very privelliged to have been able to attend a major fashion exhibition in the North East of England, usually I would have to travel many miles to view anything worthwhile. It is rare at this end of the country that we are ever home to such exhibitions but I am pleased to say that when they do land on our doorstep, they are generally of the highest quality. The Vivienne Westwood Exhibition at The Bowes Museum that I visited yesterday was no exception. An amazing retrospective displaying a collection of shoes ranging from 1973-2011, I felt totally in awe to view such a huge collection in one place from one of the most prolific designer's of this century. As you will see, it was very difficult to choose my favourites from the exhibition but here is a small selection. I enjoyed very much to see in person, some iconic shoes that I have only ever been able to admire from afar.
The exhibition runs until 10th July 2011 at The Bowes Museum, when it then travels on to Japan, New York and China. Wherever you are in the world, if you are a shoe lover, I would thoroughly recommend a visit.
