A new exhibit at FIT puts the focus on fashion’s most desirable accessory.
Over the years shoes have grown from a simple necessity to statement-making works of wearable art. As designers in the last decade have continued to push the envelope and raise the style bar, women the world over are coveting their latest creations. And now we have the exhibit to celebrate it, thanks to the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology (MFIT). The Manhattan-based college’s “Shoe Obsessed” exhibit will be on display Feb 8 to Apr. 13, celebrating contemporary shoe designers and how they have transformed the world of footwear since 1999.
