We just had to do a quick post about the news we’ve just heard, Manolo Blahnik CBE will be awarded the Outstanding Achievement accolade at the British Fashion Awards next week, to be held in the Savoy Hotel on the 27th November. Sex and the City has undoubtedly catapulted the designer’s notoriety even further afield in the 21st century, but Manolo Blahniks have long been the preferred footwear of true lovers of beautiful shoes, the world over.
As fashion illustration lovers we’ve always enjoyed the fluid and very iconic illustrations produced by the man himself, and have collected the lovely books capturing them. The shoes themselves are truly lovely and a great investment buy.
On hearing news of the award Manolo Blahnik CBE said: “It is a great honour to be receiving this award from the British Fashion Council. To be recognised for doing something I love is really wonderful.”
