Head Over Heels: Shoes, Bags, and Accessories

Head Over Heels Exhibition at William King Museum of Art

Exhibit Details


From the collection of Mary Jane Miller comes a sensational show of shoes. Head Over Heels chronicles decades of high fashion through footwear and includes designers such as Yves Saint Laurent, Stuart Weitzman, Dolce & Gabbana, and Manolo Blahnik. With rare examples of Roberta di Camerino and Rayne, Head Over Heels presents a look at the haute couture world of shoes and examples of creativity masterfully executed into structural, wearable art. The head designer of Bella Belle shoes, Erina Ardianto, and VP and brand builder, Veronyca Kwan, join the conversation to discuss how the concept turns into reality.

Included in the Mary Jane Miller collection is an equally impressive collection of designer bags, belts, and hats. This exhibition looks at elegant and playful accessories that are remarkable works of art. From the minds of top designers from the 1960s to the present day, Head Over Heels takes a look at how meticulous attention to detail and often handcrafted elements of shoes and accessories elevates them to the realm of fine arts.

This exhibition is organized by William King Museum of Art.
