Title: To Rome - Footwear
Garment: Women's Shoes

Materials: Paper and Thread

 Size: Life-sized

Inspiration: a dark blue jacket commissioned by Barbara (91), current resident of Danny House, when she lived in Rome with her husband Kenneth. The jacket has a mink collar. Inside the shoes is written: UK 5.5, EUR 42 to accord with 1955, when Barbara commissioned the jacket (and a matching dress) and her age, 42, when she and her family returned to Britain; inspired also by changing societal attitudes toward fashion’s use of real fur
