Again, this post comes to us from Amy Ko’s blog…The Curated Object
SOLE DESIRE: THE SHOES OF CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN
March 13 through April 19, 2008
Christian Louboutin’s red-soled shoes have combined wit, glamour, and a certain “je ne sais quoi” to embody the perfect blend of sex appeal and beauty. The first exhibition to examine the career of this influential designer, Sole Desire: The Shoes of Christian Louboutin, will be on view at The Museum at FIT March 13 through April 19, 2008. It is organized and curated by FIT graduate students in the Fashion and Textile Studies: History, Theory, Museum Practice Master of Arts program.
The exhibition will showcase examples of Louboutin’s work from the collection of The Museum at FIT and the archive of Christian Louboutin. Not only will it highlight his innovative designs, but it will illustrate his understanding of today’s clientele and his contributions to contemporary fashion.
