Last chance to see this incredible and inspiring exhibition at the Bata Shoe Museum (CIJnews tested).

Many of the sharp looking shoes and clothing items betray the sinister insides that crush feet with their restrictive space or infect with their poisonous dyes. This exhibit delves deeply into just how far the men and women of the 19th century would go to look fashionable, often putting their own health at risk.
