Cinderella Syndrome

The Cinderella Syndrome final evaluation and film

The Cinderella Syndrome explored the deceptively simple question How do you Display shoes and resulted in exhibitions at Westfield Shopping Centre, London and Canons Ashby a National Trust Historic House. This project examined different ways of displaying footwear and how by taking shoes into new spaces we can change how people respond to them.

The evaluation will be of particular interest to anyone interested in displaying shoes, accessories or fashion exhibitions and  interested on putting on an exhibition in a shopping centre.

The film and evaluation findings of the Cinderella Syndrome are now available
