Explore the passion that shoes can inspire through this prized private collection of Vivienne Westwood shoes, chosen for their beauty, innovation, and artistry.

This collection showcases Westwood’s Punk fashions in the 1970s and 1980s, with celebrated designs including the ‘Seditionaries’ boots favoured by The Sex Pistols; and iconic looks of late 20th century fashion such as the infamous ‘super-elevated’ heels of the 1990s: the same design that caused Naomi Campbell to take a tumble on a Paris catwalk.

To complement the exhibition, follow the footsteps of fashion through the ages with a display of footwear dating back to the 18th century selected by Dame Vivienne Westwood from our historic collection.
