About this episode

Shoe designer Christian Louboutin sits down with CNN's Sara Sidner in Hong Kong, where he discusses establishing his high heel empire without formal training, the origins of the brand's iconic red-lacquered soles, and the trademark battle with fashion giant Yves Saint Laurent. The 49-year-old French designer also describes the most extravagant pair of shoes he has ever made, and explains why he feels justified putting an expensive price tag on his products despite the current tough economic climate.
