Opening in Moscow and Beirut, Vivienne Westwood Shoes retrospective will arrive in County Durham from 10th June until 10th July. On display at the Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle, this will be the single place where Westwood’s creative shoe designs will be on show.
The Vivienne Westwood Shoes retrospective collection of 200 pieces will feature Westwood Pirate boots, Super Elevated Gillie, Rocking Horse shoe, and of course the heel killers Naomi Campbell wore when she tripped in ’93.
Dame Vivienne Westwood first came to the world’s attention in 1971 when she began selling her rebellious designs in husband and Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McClaren’s London store. The creative designer has since carved out a significant niche for her punk-inspired brand of romantic tailoring and stylized corsetry.
