Step into the storied world of Manolo Blahnik with this must-see documentary. Manolo is an in-depth portrait of the legendary designer whose dedication to his craft has made him the world’s most famous luxury shoemaker, featuring interviews with icons from the worlds of fashion and entertainment such as Anna Wintour, Rihanna, Karlie Kloss and André Leon Talley among others.
Synonymous with whimsical yet elegant heels and Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw, less is known about the humble and camera-shy man behind the iconic brand of Manolo. Sophisticated, unpredictable and with an insatiable drive to be creative, Manolo Blahnik – the man – is a funny, charming and immensely watchable documentary subject. This film strikes a perfect balance of humorous moments and in-depth information about his development as a designer.
British fashion journalist and director Michael Roberts presents this never-before-seen peek into Blahnik's world – from outgoing child to establishing his first boutique in London, to today as the 74-year-old who retains full control of the business, creating every shoe, even hand-carving the wooden forms himself.
