Manolo Blahnik will be exhibiting his shoes at New York Fashion Week this season

Manolo Blahnik has made the decision to showcase his latest masterpieces at New York Fashion Week this season, NOT London, despite bringing his epic show to the Big Smoke last year.

In what some might say is an unsurprising move, the designer is returning to New York for AW14, not London, where his last footwear trends were showcased in September.

The stiletto King and celebrity favourite will now mark February with a presentation on 9 February in a gallery in Chelsea, New York.

Manolo's September presentation in London was a great success, accompanied by a short film at the Covent Garden Hotel, and saw him return following a lengthy absence from the LFW calendar.

Talking about his move back to the Big Apple, he told WWD: 'New York is a very exciting city and I have a special sentiment towards it since it was the first place to make my shoes available to women outside of London.

'I want to share in detail how my mind and imagination work and where I get my inspiration from.'

Well, we guess if we HAVE to share him…
