French Shoe Designer breaks London Design Museum visitor record
French shoemaker Christian Louboutin’s retrospective exhibition opened at the London design Museum on May 1, 2012, has broken all previous visitor figure records with an average daily attendance of 910 visitors
To date there were over 38000 visitors and the exhibition will close on July 9, 2012. The high demand has requested that the Design Museum extends its opening on four days June 27,29 and 30 to 09.45 P.M and until 8.00 PM on July 1st.
The centre piece of the exhibition is a 3D holographic performance by burlesque performer Dita Von Teese, the London Design Museum’s first holographic installation. Louboutin’s exquisite shoe creations, with their instantly recognizable glossy red soles, are a unique fusion of fashion, craftsmanship, engineering and sculpture. The exhibition celebrates the creator’s career to date and showcases twenty years of designs and inspiration, revealing the art and theatricality of his shoe design from stilettos to lace-up boots, studded style, glamour, power, femininity and elegance.
