This lecture explores the history of high heeled shoes, fashion's most provocative accessory.  From the platform chopines of 16th century Italy to the glamerous stilettos on today's runways and red carpets, the exhibition looks at the high-heeled shoe's rich and varied history and its enduring place in our popular imagination.
