beirut: vivienne westwood shoes 1973-2011

an icon of brit fashion, vivienne westwood's career spans four decades, with a punk attitude that hasn't wavered a single bit to this day. following the success in london, the designer has sent her shoe exhibition on a tour along a string of fashion capitals across the planet. on may 20-24 the show lands at the grand palais sursock in the middle eastern fashion hub of beirut. on display are around 100 shoe designs that not only trace westwood's exceptional career from the early 1970s to date, but also illustrate her defiance of the rules of wearability and convention, the superb craftsmanship and attention to detail. location: rue sursock [achrafieh]. © vivienne westwood - a shoe like no other
