lets raise a glass to the great man himself…Manolo Blahnik

Have I ever told you how much I love Manolo Blahnik shoes? No? Well maybe this may explain why:

Manolo Blahnik shoes

Some may think the above is a large collection of Manolo Blahniks, it is, but not as vast as others- my addiction is timid in comparison. I adore Manolo Blahnik’s shoes, he’s a genius and a well connected one at that. So I was absolutely delighted to hearΒ Manolo Blahnik CBE received the Outstanding Achievement Award at this year’s British Fashion Awards. This special award celebrates and recognises one designer, who throughout their career, has made an impact on the global fashion industry.

With a career spanning almost 40 years, Manolo Blahnik is one of the world’s most influential footwear designers and has been British Fashion Awards Accessory Designer of the Year three times in 1990, 1999 and 2003. He completely deserves this award and on behalf of others who have the same love/addiction for his designs, may I raise a glass and salute this great man….CHEERS…

  1. I’m with you, his shoes are amazing and just fit. No squeezing, pinching just beautiful and balanced. Love his illustrations too. GG

    1. I have to say that the pairs I have are just a tad too high…but James in the shop said they’re not for walking in….either be taken by a chauffeur, just don’t walk too far in them…his words, not mine!!
