Manolo Blahnik shoes are known around the world for their inimitable style, rooted in a unique language and exceptional quality. A style that is foremost characterized by tech-nical virtuosity, a fine, meticulous attention to detail, mastery of colour and a fascinating imagination, matched with flawless craft.

Born in 1942 on the island of La Palma, in the Canary Islands, Blahnik became an inter-national arbiter of fashion thanks to his innate talent and tenacity and, as he freely admits, a bit of luck. Early on in his career a suggestion from Diana Vreeland, the famed editor of Vogue in the United States, that he focus on making women’s shoes, set his destiny in motion. In order to master the technique of making footwear, Blahnik studied materials on his own, and worked in factories where he gained the experience he needed over the whole creative process. All of the production phases that go into the making of Blahnik shoes are manual, and as a result, the number of pairs produced each day is a little over one hundred.

Blahnik has worked with the best-known names in fashion –Ossie Clark, Yves Saint Lau-rent, John Galliano for Dior and Oscar de la Renta. He has been described as one of the most famous contemporary shoe designers, a status that is proven through the many ac-knowledgements and awards he has received, including his appointment as Commander of the British Empire in 2007, the 2012 Spanish National Award for Design and Fashion given by the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport, and the Couture Council Award for Artistry of Fashion in 2015. In 2003, Manolo Blahnik was the first shoe designer to receive a monographic exhibition at the Design Museum in London.

.

 

This exhibition is a journey through Blahnik’s most important creations over more than forty-five years. The show is distributed into nine sections, each focusing on recurrent themes and obsessions in his work: Manolo Blahnik and his workshop, Art and Archi-tecture, Botany, Geography, Marie-Antoinette, Bajo la Luna, Obsessions, Gala and Vogue. It offers a full overview of this artist’s development, and explores the shoe beyond fashion, understood as an object with a personality of its own that transcends mere functionality and often reaches the heights of art.
