For those of us, men and women, who appreciate an exquisite shoe, and who can spot the iconic red-soled shoes of Christian Louboutin a mile away, then I suggest you visit the Christian Louboutin Exhibition at the Design Museum in London.
The French master shoemaker is celebrated in an exhibition showcasing his career since the launch of his label in 1991. Louboutin has pushed the boundaries of fashion, fusing craftsmanship with sculpture and creating masterpieces of elegance, glamour and style.
The exhibition takes visitors through each stage of the design process all the way through to the store design, as well as exhibiting his extraordinary shoe designs including studded stilettos and lace up boots. The ambience of the exhibition captures Louboutin’s creativity and inspiration, from Cabaret shoes, to film, architecture, fantasy and fairy tale.
If you are interested in fashion and design, would like a little bit of creative inspiration, then visit the Design Museum between the 1st May and 9th July.
