Christian Louboutin was created in 1992 when the designer Christian Louboutin opened his first botique at 19 Jean-Jacques in Rousseau in Paris. Born on the 7th of January 1963, Christian Louboutin is a 59-year-old designer from Paris, France. He was born under the astrological sign of Capricorn, which means he can be very passionate and creative but also stubborn and impatient at times.


An artist and a craftsman with a true passion for shoes, his designs are unique and instantly recognizable, thanks to their signature, trademarked red lacquered soles.
