Vivienne Westwood’s shoe exhibition on a world tour

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 shoes will be displayed in the new Fashion & Textile Gallery in the Bowes Museum and will include around 200 designs, dating way back to when Westwood’s career started in 1973.
The Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle, County Durham, will be the only UK venue in the world tour to showcase the exhibition, ooh, so get yourselves there!
But listen up – UK visitors have only one month to catch the exhibition before it flies off to Japan, New York and China, running from June 10th till July 10th 2011.
