About us

Discover the beauty, innovation and artistry of Vivienne Westwood shoes in a brand new exhibition showcasing the cutting-edge footwear of this pioneering British fashion designer.

A Personal Collection of Vivienne Westwood Shoes showcases Vivienne Westwood's iconic footwear through the years. This includes the Seditionaries boot from the punk era of the 1970's and Westwood's more avant-garde collections shown on the runways in Paris, such as the infamous Super-elevated Gillie's of the 1990s, the same design which Naomi Campbell famously fell from in Westwood's Gold Label Autumn-Winter 1993 show titled – Anglomania.

These iconic styles will be shown alongside the more recent Vivienne Westwood footwear collections, highlighting Westwood's continued unparalleled approach to footwear and her defiance of the rules of wearability and convention.

To complement A Personal Collection of Vivienne Westwood Shoes, Dame Vivienne Westwood has selected shoes from York Castle Museum's historic collections. The selection, ranging from the 18th century to the present day, includes a pair of hand-made Georgian satin shoes that are nearly three hundred years old, Edwardian boots designed by François Pinet, one of the most coveted shoemakers of his day and a pair of Christian Dior court shoes designed by Roger Vivier, the creator of the stiletto heel.

A Personal Collection of Vivienne Westwood Shoes is a touring exhibition from The Civic, Barnsley.
