Fashion Icons: Manolo Blahnik

07 Jun

Manolo Blahnik, who originally wanted to become a theater-set designer, opened a shoe shop in London in the early 1970s, and his heels took off with the era’s celebrities. In 1974 he became the first man to appear on the cover of British Vogue. Blahnik is credited with reviving the stiletto in the 1970s, an age when platforms rose above the rest. He is known for creating new, artistic styles while always sticking with the classic heel. And unlike many of his contemporaries, Blahnik is notable for single-handedly designing the thousands of shoes that bear his name.


Ladies, I don’t know how you do it. I actually care not to know (lol). But I can tell you that we (men) definitely appreciate how you look in them!

Very elaborate design.

Various designs. Again women I don’t know how you do it.

Just one of ‘fatboyfavs’
