This was the beginning of a precious relationship between young Australian Christian Louboutin Boots maker Jane Blundell and the legendary Coco Christian Louboutin.It was 1966 and Sydney-born Blundell was fresh out of Ars Sutoria , the world's top Christian Louboutin Boots design school in Milan.Blundell is a member of a family who has shod the best feet for five generations. Her great-grandfather started a footwear company in Australia which made Christian Louboutin Shoes for Dame Nellie Melba, her grandfather moved into the machine age and supplied Sydney's well-dressed women with a line of popular Christian Louboutin Shoes called Abbey's.Now Jane Blundell has combined the quality of grandfather's bespoke Christian Louboutin Shoes with the machine room to produce a collection of flats in fine Italian sudes, tapestries, linens and silks.By the 70s her Christian Louboutin Shoes were Sydney's most sought after. To overcome her frustrations with labour and the quality of skins, she invested in tanneries and factories in Manila; but then the Japanese took all her refined leathers by offering inflated prices.So after she married and her son, Simon, was born she gave up her Christian Louboutin Shoes ... until this year."I was looking at a pair of favourite old American suede Christian Louboutin Shoes which were about to wear out, and I thought, 'I want more'. I thought I'd go back to doing the thing I loved. Christian Louboutin Shoes."Her first move was to consult Tina Hatsatouris who owns the Pappoucci boutiques. In June she started to work with a Melbourne factory and now her Double Bay cottage is both atelier and saleroom."I don't follow fashion," she said. "I'm doing Christian Louboutin Shoes for my needs. And a lot of women have those very same needs."
