Margaret's Fluevog boots!

MGboots_160.jpgLast spring we featured Vancouver footwear designer John Fluevog on the show. His unique shoes have jazzed up wardrobes for over a quarter of a century. He shared a few of his jazz gods and goddesses, right around the time of his retrospective at the Museum of Vancouver.

Last Thursday (7 April) John Fluevog was back at the Museum of Vancouver for their current exhibit, Sweaterlodge Unlatched, by Stephanie Robb and Bill Pechet. It's a giant orange polarfleece sweater, hanging across the ceiling like an orange coloured sky.
Adding to this uniquely Vancouver art installation, Fluevog created a one of a kind pair of boots made from leather and orange polar fleece. Written on the sole..."A Thankful Person is a Happy Person".

Margaret is happy and thankful to be named the guardian to this little piece of Vancouver history.
