The Art of Fashion Show 2014
The Art of Fashion Show 2014, presents “all about shoes” a unique exhibition by curator Luis Valenzuela that explores fashion as art and celebrates the interconnected roles of visionary footwear designers as artists. The exhibition emphasizes the affluent cultural history of footwear design and its relation to status, power, fantasy, sexuality, and identifies the use of innovative or unexpected materials that push the limits of functionality and beauty.

The exhibition’s layout is creatively comprised of thematic installments that highlight innovative footwear creations throughout history, featuring original pieces designed by the most-influential design houses from around the world. This year’s exhibition stretches technology to its limits, captivating viewers with pieces designed using the must recent tech source, 3D Printing. The exhibition allows viewers to transcend time in footwear throughout the ages, featuring unique creations from 18th and 19th century, and relish the creative beauty of contemporary pieces designed by internationally acclaimed designers, including pieces by Manolo Blahnik, Salvatore Ferragamo, Christian Louboutin, Charles Jourdan, Roger Vivier, Kei Kagami, United Nude, the world most expensive shoes, “the Diamond Shoes” by jewelry designer Jason Arasheben, CEO Jason of Beverly Hills, as well as shoes from influential design houses, such as Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, Valentino, Oscar de la Renta, Comme des Garcons, Burberry and Rick Owens among others. Another special highlight of the exhibition will feature innovative shoe designs from the Holland-based Virtual Shoe Museum collection, for this section of the exhibition curator Luis Valenzuela works in collaboration with special guest, creator and curator of the Dutch museum Liza Snook.

And in an effort to support emerging artists, there will be a gallery showcasing finalist shoe pieces from the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science collaboration project. The Shoe-IN(novation) Design Dash, a design and innovation challenge inspires youth to be part of the art, design, science, and technological new world. Different 3D printer visionary support companies such us 3DStuffMaker will be part of the exhibition, allowing visitors to explore the innovative tolls and be inspired in the new world of design.

During the first Sunday of every month, join the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science for a special experience. Meet and greet with local scientists who are experts in a variety of fields, including marine biology, climate and weather, software engineering, the brain, primatology, the ocean, and much more. Trained through the Museum’s Science Communication Fellows Program, these scientists developed exciting hands-on activities for visitors to discover what they do and why it is so important.

This month’s featured scientists are:
Ashley Campbell, Graduate Student at Florida Atlantic University
Ashley’s research will take to the island Roatan in Honduras to discover the unique wonders of the Roatan Spiny-tailed Iguana. Join in with finding and counting the hidden iguanas across the island and learn about how biologists study this important reptile.
