Azzedine Alaia, 2011 From the collection of Lynn Ban

The Museum at FIT has launched their latest exhibit, this time featuring fancy footwork. Open to view through April 13th, the curation showcases a range of designers and silhouettes on dramatic display with dim-lit galleries spotlighting only the feature; footwear.  Notable styles such as the Christian Louboutin ‘Fetish’ extreme ballerina stilettos can be seen in the real (check out his collab with film-maker David Lynch). Nicholas Kirkwood has various features as well (including looks from his Keith Haring collection), adding to his escalating credibility after the BFC/Vogue named him the 2013 Fashion Fund winner. This is only to name a few of the many original pieces on view. –Savannah Todd
