He spent hours reproducing that image in his sketchbooks, laying the foundations for his career as a designer.

"I owe a lot to the drawing," he told Reuters. "I reproduced it a lot, changing the colors a bit, changing the form a bit, but I always drew ... a shoe in profile, without knowing that it could be a profession." REUTERS/Benoit Tessier

After an apprenticeship with Paris fashion houses, Louboutin set up his own brand and a shop in 1991. He attracted a line-up of high-profile customers including film stars, musicians and royals.

While working on one prototype, he saw someone next to him painting their nails, borrowed their varnish and tried putting some of it on the sole.

"It was a revelation," he said. "It became a trademark and I'm happy that I kept it." French shoe designer Christian Louboutin speaks to reporters during a press preview of his exhibition. REUTERS/Benoit Tessier
