Walk This Way

I am excited.

My good old hometown of Boston (well, okay, I technically live in the Boston area) is finally stepping up to the plate fashion-wise!

After spending years wishing that some sort of fabulous fashion event would take place somewhere nearby, the Boston MFA is hosting an exhibit on shoes!

"While shoes serve a practical function by protecting our soles from the elements and hazards underfoot, they have also become highly ornamented objects of obsession. Whatever the materials or the cost, however, shoes always reflect the time and place in which they were made and worn and the culture that produced them. "Walk This Way," unlike any footwear exhibition in the past, places shoes—from ancient Egyptian and Nubian sandals to new acquisitions representing the best in contemporary design—throughout the MFA's galleries to illustrate their relationship to other works of art. These provocative juxtapositions provide insights into the history, ornamentation, and cultural importance of footwear. In this treasure hunt of an exhibition, visitors might find a pair of Venetian chopines next to a painting of the city by Canaletto, a woman's shoe from the late 1790s embroidered with neoclassical scrolling grape vines exhibited with an ancient statue of the Greek god Dionysus, or a pair of contemporary wedges with rococo carved heels from MIU MIU's most recent collection alongside eighteenth-century carved and gilt furniture."

I am so there!

More information can be found here. I have been feeling a bit more healthy lately (well enough to finally make it to school and the mall!), so I've been thinking that I need to take a trip into the city as sort of a test run for Teen Vogue's Fashion U. Perhaps this is a good excuse! I think the concept of the exhibit is quite brilliant.

Did you go to the MFA when they had the couture collections?

No! I didn't know they were there! Damn.

Bummer! It was really fun....maybe they will do it again.

Went to check out walk this way. I was a bit disappointed because the exhibit is so spread out! I'd like to hear what you thought about it.
