    Manolo Blahnik

    Manolo Blahnik, Spanish fashion designer, born 1942 in Canary Islands, Spain. He is the head designer and founder of his namesake high-end shoe brand that was founded in 1972. Blahnik started off his fashion career after graduation from the University of Geneva in 1965, before he worked at a fashion store called ‘Zapata’ three years later in London. The young and talented designer had the opportunity to show his portfolio of self-made fashions to then famous fashion editor of Vogue Magazine, Diana Vreeland. She was the one who talked Blahnik into designing footwear only. In 1972, the designer got an assignment to design shoes for Ossie Clark’s fashion show and gained immediate attention in the fashion world. That same year, he took a loan and opened his very first own shoe boutique. Today, Manolo Blahnik’s are internationally known and adored by women not only due to the popular TV series “Sex and the City” but also because of his very unique and sophisticated shoe artwork and craftsmanship.
