Roger Vivier: Process to Perfection opens

Max MacDonald goes vintage shoe-gazing

05.09.2012

For gay men who are self-proclaimed fashion historians, realizing the power vintage couture plays on modern-day style is a given. From the launch of Christian Dior’s New Look in the '40s to the gilded age of fashion during the tux and cocktail gown '50s, Roger Vivier is always synonymous with this way of dressing. Process to Perfection trumpets the shoemaker’s glamorous work and is housed on the third floor of the Bata Shoe Museum on Bloor St W. The focus of the exhibition highlights the process he undertook to create his shoe masterpieces.Roger Vivier
In addition to the Bata Museum's Vivier holdings, the exhibit is complemented by loans from world‐renowned institutions such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Deutsch Ledermuseum in Germany and the Roger Vivier brand. Adding clout to the show is one of its main sponsors, theFashion Television Channel. Is it worth going to see? If you are a fan of women’s shoes, love fashion, or '50s Parisian supper-club chic intertwined with haute couture, then yes. 

Process to Perfection runs until April 7, 2013.
