Christian Louboutin helped bring stilettos back into fashion in the 1990s and 2000s, designing dozens of styles with heel heights of 4 inches and higher. The designer’s professed goal has been to “make a woman look beautiful and her legs as long as he can”. Louboutin is generally associated with his dressy evening-wear designs incorporating jeweled straps, bows, feathers, patent leather, red soles, and other similar decorative touches.

The launch party at ALARA, tagged ‘ALÁRA Rouge’, brought together corporate and social Lagos for an evening of fantasy, cabaret and most importantly Christian Louboutin. In the breathtaking room, decorated to depict the magical fusion of a French and African grand theatre house, guests were treated to sensational performances by a duo of aerialists and acrobats as well as the maestro violinist Godwin Strings, and an exciting DJ line-up.

Guests at the Christian Louboutin launch at ALÁRA included Mo Abudu, Bolanle Austen-Peters, Agbani Darego, Dolapo Sijuade and Kemi Adetiba as well as numerous high society women and their partners. The launch was sponsored by Access Bank.
