Shauna Levy, President of Canada’s Design Museum, the Design Exchange (DX) and Christian Louboutin.

DSC_0086…as I walked into the Toronto Design Exchange, looking for the Media check in , I couldn’t help my wondering eyes,  up to the ceiling they went, noticing the hanging hoola hoops with those showgirl shoes dangling from them! ….Immediately, Had a feeling that this Press conference with Christian, and the media tour of the exhibit, personally unveiled by Monsieur Louboutin himself,  was going to be a fabulous experience!!

Christian Louboutin was so very gracious and approachable, to our intimate gathering of Toronto Media. Sharing the evolution, and creative process of his exhibit.  Answering the common curious question, about where his inspiration comes from?….Admitting to being ‘a little spoiled’ he travels to his home in Egypt to find inspiration, for his summer collections, and finds himself in his country home, feeling the chill of winter, to inspire him for his Fall/winter collections.  It didn’t take long for me to realize, yet again, I was in the presence of an incredibly inspiring individual…The Red Sole Man….

 

After the Press conference wrapped up, media was guided through the exhibit by Donna Loveday (head of Curatorial at the Design Museum in London UK), where live TV was reporting, Jeanne Beker engaged in an interview with Christian all while we meandered throughout his theatrical exhibit of his career, and key inspirations for his designs over the last 20yrs…
TRAVEL, TRANSPARENCY, ENTERTAINMENT, ARCHITECTURE, THE SHOWGIRL, THE HANDCRAFTED, THE SHADOW THEATRE, FETISH AND THE ATELIER…an accurate, to scale, recreation of Christians working Atelier in Paris….DSC_0165-Edit
