Bally exhibition in Zurich
The Bally company, founded in Switzerland in 1851, gained worldwide renown for its top-quality shoes. It is considered a pioneer in combining craftsmanship, industrial innovation and fashion design. Read more on the company’s history on our Bally brand page.
The current exhibition at the Museum für Gestaltung in Zurich traces Bally’s shoe production from its beginnings until today. On display are originals never exhibited before, as well as fashion drawings and machines from the Bally company archive. Visitors also have the opportunity to try on current shoe models, from classic leather shoes to sneakers in pop colours. The exhibition lasts until 11 August 2019.
