Sole Obsession: 100 Years of Women’s Shoes from Kitten Heels to Power Pumps
On Exhibit June 18 – November 9, 2014

Step into the White River Valley Museum’s newest exhibit, Sole Obsession: 100 Years of Women’s Shoes from Kitten Heels to Power Pumps, opening June 18th. Sole Obsession presents a range of dressy footwear, spanning from 1910 to 2010, and reflects upon the dramatic changes experienced by the women who wore them. Over one hundred pairs of shoes from regional museums and private collections will be displayed with examples of women’s cocktail and party apparel from the Museum’s collection.
Historic clothing aficionado Christine Palmer curated the exhibit, calling upon her connections to vintage fashion collectors throughout the region. “Shoes have been a particular passion of mine, as their styles can be powerful, seductive or fanciful, depending upon the era, materials and designer.”
