Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a wonderful and relaxing weekend.
Last Friday, I had a once in a lifetime opportunity to attend the Christian Louboutin x Holt Renfrew event in Toronto to meet the designer himself. In town for the opening night of the Christan Louboutin exhibition at the Design Exchange last Thursday, Louboutin met and greeted customers (ladies and gents!) to sign new purchases made that day.
Though I didn’t go the opening event, I heard it was absolutely amazing. Apparently, the whole exhibition consists of a collection of 250 pairs of his special lust-worthy shoes. Visiting the exhibition is definitely on my summer bucket list!
These two pairs are only a sneak preview of what the exhibition has to offer. =)
Though the signing event was only 2 hours, Louboutin was a gracious man who stayed an extra hour and half to sign shoes for those eager fans who came early that day to wait in line. It was an event that made me feel truly anxious (not knowing if I would get cut from the line any minute), but I’m glad it turned out for the best. My best friend knows what I’m talking about. 😉
Spending a good 2-3 minutes with each customer, Louboutin took the time to chat with each of his guests. As one of the last people to meet him, he did not look tired at all and instead smiled and told me how grateful he was to meet us. He was honestly such a sweet man!
For him to sign my very first pair is a dream come true. ❤
Thanks for reading!
Till next time,
