Manolo Blahnik to Show at New York Fashion Week

The stiletto-master has decided to join the New York fray, holding a presentation Sunday Feb. 9 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at a gallery in Chelsea.

MANOLO IN MANHATTAN: Among the new names on the New York Fashion Week schedule is a very familiar one: Manolo Blahnik. The stiletto-master has decided to join the New York fray, holding a presentation Sunday Feb. 9 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at a gallery in Chelsea. The decision to show in New York comes on the heels of Blahnik’s successful presentation last season, accompanied by a short film at the Covent Garden Hotel in London — his first proper presentation after a lengthy absence from the official calendar. “I want to share in detail how my mind and imagination work and where I get my inspiration from,” said Blahnik. “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."
