Answer: “Standing Tall”
Question: Bernard Rudofsky?
“Yep! Vienna trained architect Bernard Rudofsky became an intellectual celebrity. Although not household name, Rudofsky questioned every aspect of modernism (from architecture and museum installations to textiles and fashion)….The 1944 show “Are Clothes Modern?” that he curated at the Museum of Modern Art (in NYC) included shoes…. (Some of which he ridiculed for their unwearableness and others which he praised–were modeled after sandals from “antiquity”)….Soon after, Rudofsky founded “Bernardo Sandals” and by 1960 the fabulous and the one and only Jackie O (aka Former First Lady Jackie Kennedy) was said to own 16 colors of the same pair….
Rudofsky designed the American pavilion for the 1958 Worlds Fair in Brussels and after decamping to Japan he analyzed Japanese culture in “The Kimona Mind”…..Bernardo Sandals was relaunched in 2001….
