Based upon the principle ‘Anything can be a shoe’, the FootPrint exhibition shows the unbridled imagination and diversity of shoes in fashion. Shoes are not only a part of one’s clothing but they are also an object of desire, memory, emotional value and inspiration.
Shoe collectors and curators of this exhibition, Geert Bruloot and Eddy Michiels, have spent 30 years collecting shoes that inspired them. Their collection has over 500 masterpieces from designers’ archives, shoe and fashion museums, and private and ethnographic collections. MoMu also houses 200 pairs of shoes from the Bruloot-Michiels collection to be displayed as privileged witnesses of history, but also to inspire the fashion designers of the future.
Geert Bruloot: ‘Just as Sergei Diaghilev, impresario of the Ballets Russes, rold Cocteau in 1917: “Amaze me!’, we invite the visitor to come on a journey with us and be amazed”
