MANOLO is the charming portrait of legendary fashion designer Manolo Blahnik
and how his extraordinary dedication to his craft led him to become the world’s most
famous luxury shoemaker, revered by celebrities, stylists, and industry icons for generations.
Growing up on a remote Spanish Canary island, Manolo made shoes out of sweet wrappers
for lizards that he caught in his family’s garden. After opening his first store in
London in 1973 and coming of age in fashion capitals such as Paris and New York, Manolo
now has shops and department store concessions in over 20 countries and retains full
control of the business, still creating every shoe, even hand-carving the wooden forms
Director and longtime fashion journalist Michael Roberts presents this never-before-seen
peek into Mr. Blahnik’s world, featuring a ‘who’s who’ of the fashion and entertainment
industries including Anna Wintour, Rihanna, Paloma Picasso, Iman, Naomi Campbell,
Rupert Everett, Karlie Kloss, Isaac Mizrahi, and André Leon Talley.
