Christian Louboutin's exquisite shoes, with their trademark glossy red soles, are a unique fusion of craftsmanship, engineering and sculpture.
Since the launch of his label in 1991, the French designer has stayed true to his original aim - 'to make shoes that are like jewels'.
From razor-sharp stilettos to lace-up boots and studded sneakers, Christian Louboutin shoes evoke style and glamour and are highly sought after.
This exhibition will be the first comprehensive presentation of Louboutin's work in the UK. It will explore how, over the past twenty years, Christian Louboutin has transformed the design of the shoe. In a dramatic exhibition environment, Louboutin's creative approach will be profiled, together with the influences behind his work ranging from the Parisian music hall, travel, art, landscape architecture and film.
