CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN

Christian Louboutin (born 7 January 1964) is a French footwear designer who launched his line of high-end women's shoes in France in 1991. Since 1992, his designs have incorporated shiny, red-lacquered soles that have become his signature. As a child, Louboutin would regularly sneak out of school, from the age of 12, to visit the flea market of Vila do Conde. Although Louboutin faced much opposition following his decision to leave school so early, he claims that his resolve was strengthened after watching an interview on TV with Sophia Loren in which she introduced her sister, saying she had to leave school when she was only 12 but when she turned 50 she got her degree. "Everybody applauded! And I thought, 'Well, at least if I regret it I'm going to be like the sister of Sophia Loren!'" Louboutin helped bring stilettos back into fashion in the 1990s and 2000s, designing dozens of styles with heel heights of 120mm (4.72 inches) and higher.

The designer's professed goal is to “make a woman look sexy, beautiful, to make her legs look as long as [he] can.” While he does offer some lower-heeled styles, Louboutin is generally associated with his dressier evening-wear designs incorporating jeweled straps, bows, feathers, patent leather and other similar decorative touches.[1] In 2011, Christian Louboutin filed a trademark infringement of their red soled shoes against designer Yves Saint Laurent.[2] Louboutin is expecting for the YSL shoe to be revoked and is seeking $1 million in damages.[3]
