Shoe fanatics eagerly awaited Manolo Blahnik's arrival at the shoe department of Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills! Proudly taking to the limelight in a dapper purple suit, bow tie and a pair of self-designed slip-on fuschia shoes, the icon put his mark on books (and even shoes!) in what seemed like a little slice of shoe-lovers' heaven.
‘It was not my idea at all to do another book,’ Manolo said to the press.
‘It was the publisher- they did so well with the first one!’
The style savvy designer who became a household name due to his shoe magic and celeb fans - including Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City added, ‘I didn’t know it was going to be such a pain - we had to look at all the archives and everything!’
But we're glad that he did! Manolo's shoe bible is the perfect way to indulge in our favourite shoes - guilt free!
Manolos New Shoes is now available in UK stores or buy online here.
