Coming soon! The exhibition ‘Footprint – The Tracks of Shoes in Fashion’ opens at MoMu Antwerp on September 3, 2015, telling the story of inspirational and groundbreaking fashion shoes of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
The exhibition shines a light on those fashion and shoe designers who left their footprint on the world of shoes by means of the exquisite and innovative designs they created.
The exhibition is based on the long-term loan to MoMu from shoe collectors Geert Bruloot and Eddy Michiels, and will include early and iconic work by Prada, Maison Margiela, Dirk Bikkembergs, Ann Demeulemeester, Dries Van Noten, A.F. Vandevorst, Manolo Blahnik, Christian Louboutin, Tokio Kumagaï, Roger Vivier, J.W. Anderson, Balenciaga, André Perugia, Jean Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Westwood, Salvatore Ferragamo, Patrick Cox, Raf Simons, Azzedine Alaïa and many more.
The MoMu shoe collection will be on show, together with unique shoes from designers’ archives, private and museum collections from all over the world.
A book by the title ‘Foot Print – The tracks of shoes in fashion’, published by Lannoo, will accompany the exhibition.
