The young designer Agnes Varnai – now in her third year of the fashion class at the University of Applied Arts and prizewinner of this year’s Swarovsky Award – metamorphoses men’s shoes into threatening jungle creatures. Can a a made-to-measure shoe become a monster? Tough as leather? A craftsman from the high-end Viennese shoemakers Rudolf Scheer & Söhne demonstrates artful double-stitching on men’s shoes in a small mobile workshop on site, and enables visitors to experience handicraft “in the flesh” (curated by Florentina Welley).
