Trip to Victoria and Albert Museum

shoes:pleasure and pain

As a self proclaimed lover of shoes, last week I was excited to see Shoes: Pleasure and Pain exhibition at Victoria and Albert Museum.

The exhibition, sponsored by Clarks, showcases the collection of over 250 pairs of shoes ranging from a sandal from ancient Egypt that was decorated in pure gold leaf to contemporary designs from across the world. 

Spanning two floors, it looks at how shoes can signify status and transform the wearer. Among the line-up, you can spot a simple pair of courts belonging to Marilyn Monroe, blue Vivienne Westwood platforms, and that nude Russell & Bromley courts that are often sported by Duchess of Cambridge.

Unfortunately, V&A doesn't allow visitors to photograph the shoe collection. However, below are some of the photos of the permanent fashion exhibition, which I also had a pleasure to see.

And here is what I wore on my trip to the museum.
