A festival of shoes in the front row

Share story

It was Fashion Week in London last week, and this lovely burnout velvet frock is from Erdem’s autumn/winter 2018 collection (shown at the National Portrait Gallery). But I chose this picture not just for the dress, or for the fabulous herringbone T-strap pumps worn with them, but for the way this shot so nicely captures the shoes of everyone in the front row. It’s as if a motley assortment of booties (one in leopard print!), sneakers, platforms and pointy-toe pumps met up, and became friends.
