Glossy red-lacquered soles will give Toronto an undisputed stamp of fashion excellence this summer when a Christian Louboutin retrospective sets up shop at the Design Exchange. The widely-anticipated exhibition, which previously garnered record attendance at the Design Museum in London, is an intimate immersion in the Louboutin world. Newly announced ticket information is all but adding fuel to our excitement for the exhibition, which will run from June 21 through to September 15.
Featuring original sketches, re-creations of his Parisian atelier and rare designs, a far-reaching foundation of the designer’s inspirations will provide viewers with insight into how travel and showgirls are translated into iconic creations.
“The focus of the exhibition is for guests to get up close and personal with every stage of Christian’s design journey, ultimately revealing how Louboutin shoes have come to represent style, glamour, power, femininity and elegance around the world,” said Donna Loveday, the exhibition’s curator.
If that’s the case, $25 is well worth witnessing Louboutin’s imaginative design process every red-soled step of the way.
