Manolo Blahnik represents the epitome of shoe-making elevated at the status of art collection and lavish sensuality. The most influential person and critic in the fashion industry, Ana Wintour, is reportedly wearing only Manolos. Sarah Jessica Parker created her own line of shoes inspired by Manolos, and her character in Sex and the City was enamored with Manolos as well. These creations have been featured in dozens of movies and documentaries, and Vogue worships Blahnik like a God. Educated in Politics, Law, Literature, Architecture, and Design, inspired by his mother’s and his aunt’s fashion sense for satin fabrics, and fascinated by exotic Moroccan motifs, Manolo has succeeded in creating a new era of shoe-making. Add in his unique, whimsical, and romantic Spanish personality, and it’s easy to see why he is regarded as the Jesus of shoe artistry.
