The quintessential red-bottomed heels have found a home at the Parisian exhibit, Palais de la Porte Dorée. With endless sources of inspiration, Christian Louboutin opens a window into his gifted mind. From February 26 and through July 26 2020, visitors can awe in admiration at over 30 years of luxury craftsmanship. 

The exhibit showcases the Parisian shoemaker's path of creation—from his first childhood designs to iconic moments that launched him as an internationally renowned fashion designer. Once called the Museum of African and Oceanic Arts—the same exhibit that inspired his early designs as a French kid—will now be housing his creative trajectory decades after his first visit. From a selection of his oeuvre, which he estimates at over 15,000 shoes and boots, the show will include archival work from his extensive career; but there's more to memory lane.  

The exhibit will include exclusive collaboration pieces—like stained glass creations by the Maison du Vitrail, silver Sevillian palanquin, and a cabaret carved in Bhutan—a true visual gift for the Louboutin devotees. Other collaborations include projects with director David Lynch, multimedia artist Lisa Reihana, the English designer duo Whitaker Malem, and Pakistani artist Imran Qureshi, amongst others. 

Olivier Gabet, director of Paris's Museum of Decorative Arts, and curator of the show invites you to explore the lavish world of Christian Louboutin.
