At the age of 12, he and his friends in the Folies Berg re as an apprentice, his idea is for those on the stage dancer shoes design. Christian Louboutin says it’s a good way to see the dancers. Because they usually wear thin shoes, feet conspicuous is the source of strength. He was doing chores including: send letters to help technicians those dancers, sewing, pasting shoes on sequins, give hair, makeup, responsible for errands.
On one occasion, he asked why those dancers often buy thin slices of beef. The answer is that they are not used to eat, but are padded in shoes, so that the soles can be cushioned when dancing.
Christian Louboutin started looking for jobs at the age of 18. He contacted all the fashion houses through telephone yellow pages. After that, he got the opportunity to intern with the famous shoemaker Charles Jourdan, and made shoes for famous brands such as Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel and Maud Frizon.
