London's ultimate luxury shopping destination, Westfield Shepherd's Bush, has joined forces with Northampton Museum and Art Gallery to create My Favourite Shoe, a ground breaking exhibition showcasing leading shoe designers from UK. The exhibition will run at the destination London shopping centre from 11-29 September. My Favourite Shoe explores how vintage shoes inspire and influence contemporary designers, with interviews about the designers’ work, design process and inspiration. 

This exhibition showcases some of the most exciting contemporary shoe designers working in UK: Atalanta Weller, Camilla Skovgaard, Joanne Stoker, Mr. Hare and Sophie Cox. They selected a favourite shoe from the Northampton Museums and Art Gallery archive and paired it with a shoe from their own collection, illustrating the links between current shoe design and the internationally designated shoe collection at Northampton Museums and Art Gallery.

The pop up is part of a wider drive - dubbed The Cinderella Syndrome - to raise awareness of the Northampton shoe heritage collection and make it accessible to new audiences by taking items from the collection into non-museum venues.
