The exhibition ‘Footprint – The tracks of Shoes in Fashion’ tells the story of inspirational and groundbreaking fashion shoes of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The exhibition gives the spotlight to fashion and shoe designers who left their footprint on the world of shoes by means of the exquisite and innovative designs they created.
Geert Bruloot and Eddy Michiels, shoe collectors and curators of this exhibition have spent thirty years collecting fashionable shoes that inspire them. Two hundred pairs of which MoMu houses in its collection.
In addition to the exhibition, the book ‘Footprint- The tracks of Shoes in Fashion’ published by Lannoo is also released. The book contains over 30 interviews from Geert Bruloot with world-renowned shoe and fashion designers who created the famous shoes of the last four decades. One of the designers Geert interviewed is Martin Margiela. This is actually the first exclusive interview with just Margiela himself. Besides personal stories and experiences from the designers, the book also includes magnificent photographs of the Bruloot-Michiels collection shot by Frédéric Uyttenhove. Bottomline, the book content- and imagewise is a work of art.
