For almost 40 years, Manolo Blahnik’s designs have conveyed the very essence of precision, balance and luxury. ‘Shoes,’ he says, ‘help transform a woman.’
One of the world’s most influential footwear designers, Manolo Blahnik has spellbound an international set of adoring and loyal devotees with his exquisitely crafted shoes. From his distinctive theatrical sketches – which have become as coveted as the shoes themselves – through to the precision workmanship that creates every silhouette, Blahnik perfects each design with his own hands. Individual works of art, Blahnik’s shoes have been celebrated both in print and at London’s Design Museum.
