Shoes Extravaganza - a shoe design competition and performance that celebrates impossible, outrageous shoes in a catwalk extravaganza.

Identity & belonging is where you stand, your Turangawaewae. It may bear no relation to your geographical location. We dwell and inhabit space socially and virtually – our shoes being that one true connection to Papatuanuku, a symbol of our unique stamp and footprint on this earth.

Our mission is to celebrate the shoe in all its imaginative glory and ‘precarity’ on the catwalk as both performance art and political agency. 

Our values of extended imagination, commitment, surprise, diversity, curiosity, care, and excitement drive the mission.

For our inaugural event we have chosen the Tepid Baths as a non conventional catwalk space in which to disrupt audience expectations and create a territory for a deconstructed catwalk, turning the gaze outside-in, the models revealing the wearing of shoes as part of an embodied performance in this unique playground for the creative. 

This annual design competition, performance, and movement, celebrates the absurd, futile, hopeless, impassable, impractical, inaccessible, inconceivable, insurmountable, preposterous, unattainable, unimaginable, unreasonable, unthinkable, in executable, ridiculous, bizarre, incredible, insane, fantastic, fetishist, ludicrous, nonsensical, outrageous, hare brained, extreme and far out, impossible, outrageous, shoes design in a choreographed extravaganza. 
Bring a torch and a cushion.
Bring your binoculars.
