I mentioned on Sunday's post that the exhibit at the Phoenix Art Museum had an element of fashion to it. (That exhibit featured pieces from private collections.) Here is one of the fashion elements. Designer shoes! I had a lot of fun examining these beauties even more closely than the lady in the above photo. I recognized several of the designer labels but there were quite a few that I had never heard of before. I do love shoes so I'm just a tiny bit envious of the woman who owns all of these.
I thought this was an especially nice shoe with a scene from "The Woman in Gold" on the side of the silk shoe. It beautifully depicts Gustave Klimt's Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer. The shoe was designed by Claudio Merazzi of Italy. He's one of the shoe designers I had not heard of before.
