Brooklyn Museum’s Killer Heels exhibit and more


This past week has been great to the fashion world. Granting great insight to the history of heels, the Brooklyn Museum adds an exhibition fashion fiends would die for. Killer Heels: The Art of The High-Heeled Shoe is making its way to display this September. This exhibit breaks down the centuries and evolution of high heels. What is a better way to understand the foundation and roots of societies most desired heels?

The Killer heels: The Art of the High-heeled Shoe is broken down into six thematic sections such as Revival and Reinterpretation, Glamour and Fetish and more. The exhibit will also be complemented with six short films that correlate with the high heels. One of the short films is directed by Lisa Small, who is also the curator of the Exhibitions at the Brooklyn Museum. Smalls is the brains behind the operations of putting together Killer Heels: the Art of the High-Heeled Shoe.

The Brooklyn Museum mentions that there are over hundreds of historical and contemporary heels loaned from high end shoe designers such as Chanel, Christian Louboutin, Tom Ford, Manolo Blahnik and many more designers.  The New York Art Beat mentions how there will even be a fully detailed, illustrated catalogue enclosed with some essays by Smalls, Stefano Tonchi, Editor-in-Chief of W Magazine; and Caroline Weber etc. Filled with many highlights, that will quench your fashion thirst, Brooklyn seems to be the place to be this summer!

Other exciting news to add this past week was the El Museo del Barrio Gala. Originally from Miami, Latino shoe designer Alejandro Inglemo received the Artistic Achievement award. His beloved open toe Boomerang heel is definitely this Spring/Summer hottest shoe. His distinct designs for men and women were simply an inspiration from his Cuban culture. It is also interesting enough to hear that Inglemo is the first shoe designer to receive this award. Glad to hear fashion is moving the world one step at a time.
