Here in Liverpool, people have the tendency to refer to Dame Vivienne Westwood as 'Our Viv'. Too familiar perhaps, but intended with the best of feeling. Vivienne Westwood is one of the very few designers who people easily identify with; as if one could have a cup of tea with her and it would be nothing out of the ordinary. As well as her legendary design aesthetics, it is her mentality that has captured the hearts of the nation - she is a true eccentric.

Opening between the 26th August and the 22nd September in Selfridges, London is an exhibition showcasing her amazing shoe designs. Of course everyone envisions the bondage trousers, the punk era and maybe even her dabble with New-Romanticism and Renaissance fashions, but only recently has a lot of attention been focused on the shoes of Vivienne Westwood. Ever since her affordable collaboration with Melissa, fashionistas have been going mad for her sweet-smelling shoes. I also truly think that Liverpool has an affinity with Westwood that goes above and beyond that of any other it is my duty to let people know about this amazing exhibition and let them flock there in their droves.
