I got together with some great friends and did a road trip to the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester N.H to see the exhibit Killer Heels . As you can imagine this was like being on sacred ground for me. I was surrounded by the amazing creations of some really outstanding designers. I took plenty of pics and want to share them with you.
The 1st 2 pictures are of me with a shoe designed by René van den Berg. If you remember, he was the master craftsman that made my design for a client of mine in Paris. René's work is amazing. The next 2 designs are from Iris van Herpen. Iris does many of her designs with 3d printing. There is a video of that last shoe being printed.
Black pump with Lucite and steel by Chau Har Lee. Some of her all lucite shoes are incredible. Christian Louboutin ballet (not flats). Extreme but so cool. Finsk Shoes by Julia lundsten a talented Finnish designer. The last shoe was designed by the legendary Salvatore Ferragamo. Ferragamo was the 1st designer to make shoes with a wedge heel. Ferragamo had many innovations with shoes. These were designed probably in the 1940's with a wedge and a cool Turkish toe.
