Fashion icon and idol to many, Vivienne Westwood has got shoe lovers everywhere excited over her latest project; an exhibition of her designs in department store Selfridges.

Taking inspiration from her decades long career, footwear in the form of creations since the start of her career to today will be available in over 200 styles.  A girls dream right?

“Shoe design is one of the great things we’ve got left”, Vivienne told website StyleList, as she gave fans an insight into what feelings she holds about her shoe game.

The exhibition will be acting as an archive of her work for all to see, drool over and wish for.  Styles will include the 1981 Pirate Boot, the Mary Jane six inch heel and the highly elevated Gillie platform shoe.

She continued, “…you know you break your ankle if people don’t design you a proper pair of shoes.  They have to be done properly”.

And right she is.  The large amounts of care and attention that go into shoe design is what makes Vivienne’s job so timeless and important to her.  After all, we all need shoes right?
