Manolo Blahnik to receive Outstanding Achievement Award 2012

Iconic designer Manolo Blahnik will receive an award for Outstanding Achievement at the British Fashion Awards 2012.

Legendary footwear designer Manolo Blahnik has been in the business for over 40 years, rising to fame as Carrie Bradshaws’ (Sex and the City- as if you didn’t know…) shoe of choice. Renowned for pushing the boundaries with elaborate design and lavish trimmings, Manolo made shoes the center piece of an outfit rather than an after thought. This award is whole-heartily deserved and I can’t wait to see what frivolous and fabulous treats Manolo has in store for us at London Fashion Week Feb 2013.
