Tuesday Shoesday – Louboutin Exhibition at the Design Museum

This week saw the launch of the Louboutin exhibition at the Design Museum in London. This is Christian Louboutin‘s first ever retrospective in the UK and the press, including Vogue, Marie Claire, Elle, Harpers Bazaar, The Guardian, Grazia & Telegraph, have been salivating over the exhibition – here’s a preview in pictures from The Telegraph Fashion pages.

Not only does the exhibition feature exhibits of his design classics and celebrities stepping out in his ultra-high heels, but according to the Design Museum it is also educational; “At the core of the exhibition is a unique exploration of Louboutin’s design process, taking the visitor through every stage of the design journey, revealing how a shoe is constructed, from the initial drawing and first prototype through to production in the factory”.

The highlight of the exhibition is this amazing hologram of Dita Von Teese performing a 3 minute burlesque show in her Louboutin heels. I especially love all the sparkly glitter that follows her movements in this hologram and how she emerges from a Louboutin shoe. This sort YouTube clip was filmed at the launch of the exhibition to please excuse the background noise! 

The exhibition runs from 1st May until the 9th July – more info from The Design Museum website
