The decorative Rococo style, particularly its use of shell forms, was the inspiration for this shoe design, 2016.
Rococo developed in the 18th century as a response to the elegant, symmetry and strict rules of the Baroque style. The era’s artist adapted a playful, gay, kitschy, and graceful approach, employing asymmetrical design. For this work I drew from the visual aspects often era’s churches and their wall decorations: ‘a world of madness and aristocracy.’
