The Bata Shoe Museum is excited to present the highly anticipated travelling exhibition MANOLO BLAHNIK: THE ART OF SHOES, a stunning retrospective by one of the world’s most influential figures within the fashion industry.
For over 45 years, Blahnik’s inventiveness and superb artisanship has crossed boundaries between fashion and art, inspiring elegance and perfection. The underlying theme of the exhibition – that shoes are art – aligns perfectly with Blahnik’s own approach to creating footwear. The BSM is excited to be the final and only North American venue to showcase this travelling exhibition. Previous stops on the international tour included Milan, Saint Petersburg, Prague and Madrid. The exhibition opens to the public on May 16th, 2018, and runs through until January 6, 2019.
Museum exhibitions allow objects to speak and connect with audiences in very different and personal ways. The Bata Shoe Museum is excited to present a series of tours of Manolo Blahnik: The Art of Shoes with special ‘Guest Guides’ from a variety of areas within the fashion industry. Each guide will lead participants on a tour inspired by their background and their own personal experience of the exhibition.
