On Wednesday, November 4, Neiman Marcus NorthPark Center hosted Christian Louboutin’s red hot visit to Dallas. Read on for the scoop and pics.
A pair of Louboutins gets ‘em coming and going. Audacious curvilinear styling draws eyes down, down, down to the scene-stealing shoes upon a wearer’s grand entrance. And when she leaves, taking with her the life of the party, the flash of a signature red sole seals the deal. As in, forget any fashion statements above the ankle.
After launching his eponymous brand in the early ‘90s, Christian Louboutin’s kicks have evolved into key symbols of status, sex, and style. While the brand includes comparatively conservative flats and additional accessories, its key look is an unabashedly trendy sky-scraping platform heel with a trademark red sole. Each pair costs a pretty penny, to be sure, with Christian Louboutin ranking among the most popular fashion labels in the world.
Last Wednesday, November 4, Neiman Marcus hosted the shoe designer for a private meet-and-greet and public personal appearance here in the Big D. Kicking off his day in Dallas in the garden of the retailer’s NorthPark Center location, Louboutin mixed and mingled with invited guests. The setting included an ivy-covered wall inset with roses depicting that unmistakable sole.
The man of the hour posed for pictures with all, a gracious smile never leaving his face. Thereafter, he took his place within another custom locale on Level Two for a public signing event. Complete with red carpet and Viva Louboutin mural, Neiman’s spared no special touch to make the day memorable.
Some shoppers arrived up to four hours early to secure their spot in line. At 2 p.m., the designer began autographing new pairs as champagne flowed. He signed each with a flourish and whimsical decoration. Of special note, Louboutin stayed through 6 p.m., extending his appearance an extra two hours to accommodate each and every guest.
