Description

"I'll never be able to fit into my mother's pretty shoes!" Meant to be a catalogue of her mother's shoes simply as a gift to her mother and a keepsake, it developed by adding adding memories, quotations, anectdotes - and opinions. It is a celebration of the style of shoes that her mother wore, and a Golden Age of shoe design, all designed to extend and flatter the graceful, natural curves of the foot and leg, and add appeal and interest, without outshining the wearer's natural assets.

These shoes represent a slice of the golden age of business as well, large and small, particularly in the Southeast, that developed after World War II. The discretionary spending created from textiles, tobacco, insurance, furniture and aviation was the fuel for many small businesses centered around design and the arts, as well as the creation of many museums and foundations that nurture arts in our communities long after the businesses and families have faded away.
