As I stepped through the exhibit, I literally felt like I was dreaming. Being a lover of shoes and appreciator of art, walking into an illuminated room full of the instantly, recognizable, glossy red soles was quite the experience.
The carousel display of Louboutins was just FABulous and where I spent most of my time in admiration. It wasn't a surprise to hear groups of women gasping out of amazement while running toward their favourite designs - I was one of them.
It felt so surreal to be in the presence of history and the abundance of styles, shapes and designs created by Christian Louboutin in his career of 20 years. The designs are so intricate, so detailed, and so gorgeous. Some of my favourite designs include Lady Lynch Zeppa from the Autumn/Winter collection of 2009/10, Mount Street from the Spring/Summer collection of 2009, Tsar from the collection of Autumn/Winter 2010-11, Metropolis from the collection of Autumn/Winter 2010-11 to name a few. I would highly recommend those who are lovers of fashion and of the arts to see this limited time exhibit, as it is well worth it.
For me, symbolically, the exhibition of Louboutin designs represent Christian's journey, where dreams began, the development of masterpiece creations, and inspiration. What I left with that day was just a confirmation that no dreams are too big; I truly was inspired.
The Louboutin exhibition runs from June 21 - September 15, 2013. It's nothing like you've seen - I guarantee it.
