London’s Design Museum has announced a new exhibition that will allow visitors to explore Christian Louboutin’s design process. The exhibition, opening in March 2012, will explain how Louboutin’s shoes are constructed, from initials drawing and first prototypes through to production in the factory.
The museum promises that a “dramatic exhibition environment” will celebrate Louboutin’s career to date and showcase twenty years of his designs. As well as examining the sources of Louboutin’s creativity, it will also focus on handcrafted shoes, one-off Louboutin designs that have incorporated innovative ideas, forms or materials.
The exhibition will open on 28 March 2012 at the Design Museum, 28 Shad Thames, London SE1 2YD. Admission is £10.00 adults, £9.00 concessions and £6.00 students. Under 12s are free. The exhibition will be open daily from 10am – 5.45pm until 1 July 2012.
