Art comes in all shapes and sizes, and Manolo Blahnik shoes are the best proof there is. The Manolo Blahnik Designer profile tells the story of a visionary of whimsical architectural footwear who builds his work around passion, not business. Initially studying to become a diplomat, he changed the course of his studies and ended up at the École des Beaux-Arts and Louvre Art School. At Diana Vreeland's encouragement (editor of US Vogue), Manolo Blahnik started to bring his shoes sketches to life and founded his own label.
The brand got under the brightest of spotlights when Sex and the City's main character declared her eternal love for her Blahniks. The popular show unintentionally created an immense hype around the designer, making it every fashion lover's dream shoe. And for good reason, because every pair of Blahnik heels looks like a modern yet comfortable and custom made sculpture.
