All that glitters…
Make a knockout entrance at your Christmas party in these fabulous boots.
They were recently donated in response to our ‘We want your shoes!’ campaign. We think they were designed and made by the shoe designer to the stars Terry de Havilland in the 1970s.
The Shoe Collection at Northampton Museum & Art Gallery is the largest collection of footwear heritage and design in Europe. The collection is a rich resource covering footwear design and fashion, manufacture, social and political history. It is designated as being of national and international importance.
Northampton Museum and Art Gallery is actively looking to develop its Shoe Collection through gifts and bequests. We are particularly interested in shoes with exceptional or everyday stories, designer shoes by the likes of Vivienne Westwood, Gucci, Chanel, Alexander McQueen, Jimmy Choo, Roger Vivier, André Courrèges or early Salvatore Ferragamo, celebrity shoes that have belonged to famous or significant people, shoe catalogues, non-designer contemporary footwear, footwear from South America and items relating to shoe retail.
If you would like to donate your shoes please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Wishing you all a shoe-tastic Christmas and New Year
