Party photos of the week: Christian Louboutin exhibit

On June 20, the Design Exchange hosted the hotly anticipated opening night gala for the Christian Louboutin exhibit. Co-presented by Holt Renfrew, the North American premiere of the exhibit celebrated 20 years of design and artistry. The man himself, Christian Louboutin, gave opening remarks alongside Design Exchange President Shauna Levy and a touching speech by Kimberly Grabel, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Customer Experience of Holt Renfrew. The next day, Mr. Louboutin made a public experience at the luxury retailer’s Bloor Street location where he was met with a rock concert-like level of fandom and proceeded to sign over 200 shoes and handbags over four hours.
