Synopsis

Fashion's leading shoemaker, Manolo Blahnik is one of the handful of designers whose name is synonymous with their product. His success has lasted from setting up as a shoe designer in a Chelsea boutique in the 1970s to the present day, with American Vogue's Anna Wintour declaring 'The truth is, I wear no other shoes except his'.

Blahnik has collaborated with many leading fashion designers - from Ossie Clark at the start of his career and John Galliano at Dior at its height - but Blahnik's greatest achievement is to have made footwear, previously subservient to the overall concept of a look, the most important of all accessories. His many covers and features in the pages of Vogue reveal that wearing a pair of 'Manolos' is to be utterly transformed; in Blahnik's dreamy, handmade creations, a woman can reinvent her personality. She is a Lolita in his Mary-Janes and a red carpet diva in his satin mules. Or as Madonna once put it, with characteristic bluntness: 'His shoes are wonderful, and they last longer than sex.'
 

About the Publisher

Quadrille Publishing

Quadrille Publishing

It was in 1994 that Quadrille Publishing announced itself to the world, a team of four with a dream: the creation of a small list of books that would innovate in every way, editorial, design, production and sales, stay in print for many years, and be sold the world over. Two whole (long) decades later, how the world has changed, yet our goal remains. Our new list reflects these aims. Our craft list is heralded by our second The Great British Sewing Bee TV tie-in book, Sew Your Own Wardrobe, packed wtih desirable projects and packaged with five full-size pattern sheets - a first for a TV tie-in. Love at First Stitch by Tilly Walnes, herself a contestant in the first The Great British Sewing Bee, is a brilliant introduction to the world of sewing, full of glorious must-have garments and already attracting wide interest, The Cath Kidston Sewing Book is a dazzling follow up to the most successful craft book ever in the UK, Sew!
