Shoes are a Girl's Best Friend

You know that famous song that goes… “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend”, well I will replace it Shoes! It is they who are with us for the whole day… everywhere! beautiful, comfortable, uncomfortable, high, low … shoes and even shoes!
“Shoe Obsession”, the name says it all! Not mere accessories to wear to the feet, but real works of art.

On stage at the Museum at Fit in New York, an exhibition open to the public from 8 February to 13 April 2013, addressed to so many women “affected” by an uncontrollable passion for shoes. A fantastic exhibition which gathers 150 creations of the most famous shoe designers of the twenty-first century. Not only shoes, but a means of expression, art and culture.
The exhibition recounts the evolution that has undergone the shoe over the years, mainly cultural transformation that has led her to become, in its structure, increasingly complex and articulated, a sculpture, shaped by the hands of the new shoes designers. It goes beyond that which is its primary function, is a mix of colors, shapes, materials, and new “equilibrium”, the latter perhaps too “unstable” would say.
How not to start with the shoe addict par excellence, Carrie Bradshaw, aka Sarah Jessica Parker, the protagonist of the famous TV series Sex and the City. During the exhibition are in fact exposed Manolo Blahnik, appeared in the episode “A Woman’s Right to Shoes”, which helped to make known to a broad band, Manolo Blahnik.
Great attention will be given to “repair” of history, as, but also young creators like Charlotte Olympia Dellal, Nicholas Kirkwood, Alexandre Birman.
Many eccentric prticolarmente models like Lady Pointe shoes Japanese Noritaka Tatehana, known by the public as the shoes worn by Lady Gaga during a performance. More than shoes, a real “architecture”, we can confine ourselves to look, are 45 cm high.
They will be exhibited iconic Lipstick Heel Alberto Guardian, and other emblematic models of Balenciaga, Prada, Roger Vivier. Many more elaborate and eccentric footwear, such as “Invisible shoe” Andreia Chaves, the “mirror shoes” completely covered with mirrors and décolleté Masaya Kushino, the designer-artist who decorates his shoes with hair. What about… something for every taste, from the most unexpected and fanciful to those who have made us dream, through the big screen at the foot of the stars. For those who will have the opportunity to travel to New York in recent months, do not miss this fantastic exhibition, it is an ‘experience to live absolutely, not just for addicted to shoes, but for lovers of art in every facet!
