Tadeusz Januszkiewicz Rendition of EG Brummel

How cool would it be if someone created a competition whereby every shoemaker in the world was to take one pattern (say this Brummel one for example) and make it to their interpretation to then be judged on by a panel of ‘shoe experts’? For me, that would be a fun project and would really bring out the idea of how different shoes from different countries possess their own aesthetic, and how that aesthetic ultimately alters the look of the shoes, even if its pattern was exactly the same as the next guy (or girl)…..Seeing these shoes here made by Tadeusz Januszkiewicz for a client whom asked him to recreate the Edward Green “Brummel” (below), made me think of this. It would probably be nearly impossible to actually get this competition off of the ground, without some heavy financial backing to offer the prize winners, but I reckon that a lot of great things would be created, and that it would be a great story to tell!! So for all you that read the blog that might be good event planners, let’s get this ball rolling 🙂
