imelda marcos has done some mighty naughty and evil things. i don’t condone any of her abborant behavior. yet there remains one thing for which i will always admire her. she let the world know, in no uncertain terms, that shoes were essential to many a woman’s existence. by having thousands of pairs, she also let the world know about the filipino culture in a nutshell: s/he who has the most, wins.
i’ve been collecting images of wacky shoes for a while, and it’s time to play show and tell. do let me know what you think goes on in the minds of designers…because with some of the shoes, i am at a complete and total loss. i throw my hands in the hair and mouth WTF, because i just don’t get it.
