THE FUN

The Shoe Party

WHEN: Friday, August 22, 2008, 7pm

WHAT: The Shoe Party is a semi-serious event involving a runway, a judging panel, prizes and a bar. Curious observers, enthusiastic first-timers and seasoned runway participants are welcome to show off their favourite footware.

The 4th Shoe Party will be enhanced by an exhibition curated by the Trousseau Society. Titled, City Sole: A Love Affair, the show explores a recently uncovered Toronto collection of over 7,000 fashion history items which has yielded a breathtaking selection of party shoes from the turn of the century to the 1980s. Still carrying a lingering but potent memory of these impulses, the shoes are being brought back for a final party out on the town. Freed from their boxes, 10 pairs of never-before-seen shoes will be displayed against a backdrop of photographs of Toronto women from across the city modeling their favourite fancy footwear circa 2008 - creating one last riotous, colourful celebration of women from across the generations.
