Blahnik claims that his decision to be a shoemaker was 'one of those accidents of life. I could just as well have been a milliner or a fashion designer'. His choices were wide, but he chose shoemaking and started his highly successful business in 1972 with his shop Zapata. From the beginning, Blahnik's shoes reflected his style, wit and flair. He draws shoes with a verve that is uniquely his own, capturing their spirit and mood in a few deft lines.
As a total perfectionist, Manolo Blahnik controls every process in the production of his shoes and still makes the last of every shoe in a collection with his own hands. He has made shoes for everyone from Bianca Jagger, Jerry Hall and Diana Ross to Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Victoria Beckham. His designs have been described by Madonna as 'wonderful -- they last longer than sex'. He also creates shoes for thirteen designers, including John Galliano, Oscar de la Renta and Christian Dior. It is therefore of no surprise that the word 'Manolos' has become synonymous with the finest footwear in the world.
Through his informative text and a stunning selection of photographs, Colin McDowell takes us into Blahnik's factory and homes to show us his life and his work, and reveals this ultimate fashion icon as the world has never before seen him.
