Floating World

Launched on 03 September 2014

To celebrate his SHOWcabinet exhibition, Noritaka Tatehana took up residence at SHOWstudio on 9, 10 and 11 September 2014 to create a pair of his vertiginous heel-less shoes during a live broadcast. Revealing his process for the very first time, the shoemaker gave a step by step demonstration of the techniques used to create his gravity defying designs. When the shoes were complete, Nick Knight shot them on Daphne Guinness, a longterm champion of Tatehana, in a finale that marked the opening of the exhibition. The shoot resulted in a fashion film that depicts Tatehana's latest creation.
