Paris College of Art Taps Christian Louboutin

Footwear designer is named president of class of 2013.

CLASS ACT: Shoe guru Christian Louboutin is wearing a new hat: president of the class of 2013 at the Paris College of Art. The designer recently met with final-year students and gave them a theme to inspire their work: It is to be kept under wraps until the school’s end-of-year show in May.

According to the college, Louboutin encouraged students from across various disciplines — communications, design, fine art, photography — to collaborate freely and told them to “be true to yourself.”
