The Day When I Met Christian Louboutin

Posted In: Inspiration

With the year coming to an end and Thanksgiving Day couple days ago I was looking back at 2017 and thinking how extraordinary this year has been so far. I wanted to share my career highlight of this summer – attending a celebration of the launch of Harper’s Bazaar 150 Years: The Greatest Moments where I met Christian Louboutin and Harper’s Bazaar editor in-chief Glenda Bailey – the experience I am extremely grateful for.

If you are following me on Instagram stories you’ve probably seen me spending couple of amazing days in Paris in May, and now finally I’ve prepared a blog post to relive it all again.

On the 15th of May I left rainy London to arrive to sunny and hot Paris where I rushed to Bistrot Valois – the coffee shop where Christian Louboutin buys his morning cappuccino and where Glenda Bailey hosted an intimate conversation and meet & greet with Christian Louboutin to celebrate the launch of Harper’s Bazaar 150 Years: The Greatest Moments book.

Christian was sharing stories about his life, career and, of course, his love for shoes. It was hard not to fall in love with him.

Time from time I had to pinch myself to realise that all this wasn’t a dream and that I am actually talking with the most famous shoe designer whose high-end stilettos with red-lacquered soles I absolutely adore.

The event continued to Christian Louboutin boutique at Rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau (aka shoe heaven) for a private shopping event.

Next morning started with a private tour of the Schiaparelli atelier on Place Vendôme (spectacular interiors of a boutique deserves a separate blog post which is coming very soon) which was followed by a grand finale of 2 day celebration – party and book signing.

Which was followed by a few cocktails and a photoshoot of the most gorgeous dress in gold lace by Michaela Frankova.

The reason why I wanted to share this experience is not to show off but to inspire not to be afraid of dreaming – don’t be afraid because you don’t know how to achieve your dream, that will come to you in time. You will figure it out, you will make a plan and you will do it!

If anybody told me even a year ago that I will have an opportunity of being a part of this extraordinary experience, I would have never believed it. The invitation was a very pleasant surprise and I am eternally grateful to people who made it possible.

Dream! Believe! Achieve!
