“Why do women develop such an urge and desire to own one, then two, then a dozen and, for some, even hundreds of pairs in all sizes, shapes and colors?” This question was posed by Yves Sabourin, who is the curator of the International Museum of Shoes in Romans, France.
The museum has kindly loaned its collection to Thailand Creative and Design Centre at the Emporium in Bangkok. The collection is being shown in an exhibition entitled “Portraits of Shoes – Stories of Feet”.
According to an article in The Nation the collection will be on display until August 20 and contains more than a hundred pairs of international fine footwear spanning the last four centuries. This creative collection features a wide range of shoes in every style, from Chanel shoes with heels shaped like light bulbs to transparent trainers, presenting the shoes as works of art.
Most women will tell you that there is something alluring about shoes, although few can tell you exactly what it is that makes shoes so appealing. For the chance to figure it out, head over to Thailand Creative and Design Centre.
