Affection of garments
The 18th century was a very important era for the fashion history, full of inspiration from royalty and high society with their own obsession and fetishism. The distinct use of special materials and form the focus on corsets. Harsh materials, combined with feminine forms point out the relation between the owner and the object. Golden details and bright colors underline this. In many ways there was a sense of sexual fetish found in their costumes and especialy in the way of dressing and buttoning up.
These shoes are hand made from metal, handweaved denim and golden yarns twisted in the texile museum and was a part off (MoBA 13) The FETISHISM IN FASHION at MºBA CENTRAAL exhibition in Arnhem.
