Iconic shoe designer Manolo Blahnik on Kate Moss’ wedding

Shoe designer to the stars Manolo Blahnik has admitted being responsible for Kate Moss wedding shoes was quite a challenge

He became a household name when Sarah Jessica Parker’s character Carrie Bradshaw continuously lusted over his shoes in Sex and the City but Manolo Blahnik has always been a fashion favourite, and it was no surprise that Kate Moss chose one of his designs to wear on her wedding day.


Taking the stunning Godicefac sandals, Manolo’s team customised the silver heels with blue insoles and a touch of sparkle with crystal embellishment.

But it wasn’t that easy, Manolo explained: “We did them five times to get them the way she wanted.”


Before adding: “The shoes arrived the day before and there were too many jewels on the heel because of the long train, so we had women working up until midnight to change it.”

But in the interview with Women’s Wear Daily, Manolo admitted it was all worth it, commenting: “The wedding was divine. Kate has such a presence. You just have to feel it.”
