I spent an afternoon at the Women Fashion Power exhibition at London’s Design Museum, and was fascinated to learn more about how our clothing and position in society have been so entangled.
From corsetry to suffragette uniforms to 1980s club-wear, we follow the journey of women’s complex relationship with clothing which enhances, conceals or empowers.
I couldn’t help but share some of the footwear styles, which stood out either because of their beauty, shockingness, or cultural significance.

Utilitarian meets reptile
Disco does ornate
Pretty power dressing
Workwear for the recession
I highly recommend taking a couple of hours to see this exhibition for yourself, before it closes on April 26th 2015.
