We keep talking about fashion trends in terms of accessories, clothing items, sunglasses, hats, shoes, bags, and the list goes on…instead, lets talk about those who bring fashion in our closets, particularly those who make women walk with their heads up, even when they don’t feel like doing it. You guessed, I am talking about shoe designers.

The one I chose to write about in today’s article was born in a country famous for its cheese, champagne and of course FASHION! Celebrities like Beyoncé, Christina Aguilera, Blake Lively, Victoria Beckham, Eva Longoria, Sarah Jessica Parker, Madonna, Lady Gaga and Kate Moss adore his creations. For three years his shoes were on top of the Luxury Brand Status Index (LBSI)…yes, there is such an organization in New York that conducts research on the luxury industry called The Luxury Institute. In order to make you understand how advanced the fashion industry is, let me also inform you that there also exists a Fashion Law Institute, which is the world’s first center dedicated to law and the business of fashion.

But let’s get back to our designer ;) If you still don’t know who I am talking about let me give you a last hint: the red-lacquered soles are his signature. Yeah! I’m talking about Christian Louboutin.

Working as a freelance designer, Louboutin designed women’s shoes for Chanel, Yves SaintLaurent, and Maud Frizon. For a short period of time he worked as a landscape designer, but then realized that his passion involves shoes and opened a his first shoes salon in Paris, in 1991. Since then his boutiques spread worldwide and now Christian Louboutin’s brand counts almost 50 stores with flagships in all world’s fashion capitals.

Decorated with jeweled straps, bows, feathers, patent leather, lace and rhinestones Louboutin’s shoes are famous for their elegance , sex appeal and classy touch.

His creations are worn by celebrities to movie premieres, concerts, fashion shows, awards and other important events.

He doesn’t even make presents for his family, saying that “giving shoes away as gifts is  unimaginative”.

It’s not forbidden to dream though ;) ….

    I’ve been able to get a couple of Louboutin stiletto pumps (the Lady Page and the Feticha) and found them to be real joys in comfort to wear. As the saying goes, they felt like gloves as their construction and design seem to have been made especially to caress only my feet. I love to wear them around the house from time to time, but they have been designated for special social occasions.

    Oh I just love his shoes! I have to say that my one pair that I own is ridiculously comfortable for a high heel….. I’d love to know how they are actually made to make them fit so well. Okay so no free shoes but I wonder if I can get an invite to his studio…..
