Staying with Lady Gaga, we also present some of her shoe designers, Kobi Levi and Kermit Tesoro. Levi’s ‘Double Boot’ was used in the ‘Born this Way’ music video whilst Tesoro is also known for his headline grabbing heel-less shoes and towering wedge boots for French-born designer, Florian Jayet, an intern for the late Alexander McQueen.
We take our hats off to London based Bundle MacLaren who shot to fame in 2011 after designing a dozen hats for the Royal Wedding and are lucky to have examples from world renowned milliner, Stephen Jones. For anyone with a sweet tooth, Shoe Bakery will definitely tempt your sweet side, bringing style and whimsy to the world of women’s shoes with unique cupcake, ice cream and cinnamon bun designs.
No show of this nature would be complete without iconic design examples – the towering Union Jack boots worn by Spice Girls, Geri Halliwell and the continuing impact of innovators like Bjork, presented through the work of fashion designer and collaborator with the musician, Marlou Breuls.
We continue our ongoing relationship with artist Grace Du Prez and welcome Vogue featured H E I D I L E E - also using 3D Printing technology. Made in the Middle jeweller, Dauvit Alexander, will show more iron ore and steel pieces inspired by when men more freely wore elaborate and beautiful jewellery.
Primarily about letting the imagination fly, celebrating individualism and self-expression the show also considers environmental and ethical questions and the issues of authenticity and style.

This year has four categories that will be independently judged with short listed entries being displayed in the Boardwalk Bistro at the Natural World Centre. Visitors will also have their chance to vote for their favourite which will become the face of the 2018 Calendar which will go on sale in the shop.
