With only one month to go until #Christmas, Claridge’s Hotel in London continues its tradition of inviting creatives to envision the iconic London establishment’s Christmas tree. Following in the footsteps of Karl Lagerfeld, Diane von Furstenberg and other designers, this year sees #ChristianLouboutin create his version. What do you think? Growing up in #Paris, the #footwear designer spent more time sketching shoes than studying and was reportedly expelled from three schools. Although he is not formally trained, he attended Académie d'Art Roederer to study drawing and decorative arts. He ran away to Egypt and India during his teenage years and returned to Paris with a portfolio filled with sketches of fantastical heels. After approaching all of the major couture houses, #Louboutin started his career at Charles Jourdan, one of Paris’ and the world’s most respected shoemakers. Louboutin left Charles Jourdan to work as a freelance #designer, working for Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and Roger Vivier. The designer went on to open his first store in Paris in 1992; his red-soled shoes, handcrafted in Italy, were soon taken up by Hollywood actresses and Paris’ fashion establishment.
