Manolo Blahnik, the elegant master of women’s shoe design, was born in Spain’s Canary Islands. After studying architecture in Geneva, he relocated to Paris and then London, where he opened his first boutique. The Manolo Blahnik line has earned icon status; the distinctively sexy and sophisticated heel on a Manolo Blahnik shoe is instantly recognizable. The collection is celebrated around the world, and has been immortalized in fashion-forward films and television series.

Well if you are in NYC today then you should  hurry over to Bergdorf’s in NYC to meet the legendary shoe maker Manolo Blahnik. He’s a man after my own heart who can’t live without sugar!! I can’t live without sugar either. I have tried and my brain hurts when I don’t have sugar. His favorite dessert is plum cake and he hates platform shoes. He says they are just too common. His shoes are special and sparkly. Women of all ages love Manolo Blahniks.  Since I couldn’t be in NYC for this event I wanted to bring  Mr. Manolo Blahnik’s  to you. I called up the MB headquarters in NYC to find out what’s new so to speak.

BB: I love your shoes what is so special about this BB collection?

MB: “The beauty of this shoe is that it can be worn at anytime, anywhere, in any color and any material. It is so versatile!”

BB: Women save for years to buy your shoes how does that make you feel?

MB:  “I love that women treasure the shoes. I have no perception of fame or celebrity I am just happy to make beautiful shoes.”
