The circus wears Loubotin

The circus wears Loubotin


This week, I visited the Design Exchange in Toronto  to see the Christian Louboutin  Exhibit. Christian is a famed shoe designer. The shoes that he presented were inspired by his life experiences including travel to different countries, his love for dancing, women and sex. 

In the exhibit, he shows the process of shoe design from the original sketch to the final product.  The dominant theme in the backdrop is the cabaret and throughout the display, Louboutin  expresses his love for dancing and performing arts in his shoes.  For Louboutin, shoes are an extension of the legs and they represent freedom of movement.  When he pictures the shoes in his mind,  he envisions the the dancers flying gracefully on stage, just as birds fly gracefully in the air.
As an artist, he creates avant garde  shoes using controversial materials such as long hammer nails, crocodile skins, fish scales, and even trash.
Finally, I would like to highly recommend visiting this beautiful exhibition of creative genius, which will stimulate your senses.  Viewing the work of Louboutin puts you in a fashion paradise.  Although, if you are an animal lover this this is not the exhibit for you.
