Manolo Blahnik Steps into the NYFW Fray
London-based high-end shoe line, Manolo Blahnik decided to show at New York Fashion Week. Side-stepping the tents, Blahnik will present his Fall 2014 collection on Sunday, February th from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in a Chelsea gallery, Women’s Wear Daily is reporting.
Last season, the Spanish designer enjoyed a successful presentation during London Fashion Week at the Covent Garden Hotel, accompanied by a short film—his first showing in quite a while, though he did tease us with a J.Crew sighting during last year’s Spring shows.
“I want to be share in detail how my mind and imagination work and where I get my inspiration from,” Blahnik 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.”
Oh, and that’s also where that show, Sex and the City was filmed, perhaps you’ve heard of it? Little Carrie Bradshaw played by Sarah Jessica Parker—who coincidently has her own shoe line on the way—put Manolo on the map as she traipsed all through New York in them.
