You might only just be getting your head around Spring Summer 2014, but fashion week is on it's way people. In February the Autumn Winter 2014 shows will kick off in New York. We have another reason to be giddy about NYFW, as this morning it was confirmed that Manolo Blahnik has been added to the schedule.
The shoe master will hold a presentation on February 9th from 11am to 2pm at a gallery in Cheslea. Last season he held a presentation at London Fashion Week, but after just one season, he has decided to move to the Big Apple. We are disappointed he is leaving London, but he does have a history with New York thanks to a certain sex columnist with a weakness for cosmos.
The designer said to WWD: 'I want to share in detail how my mind and imagination work and where I get my inspiration from. 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.'
But could SJP also be behind the move? Sarah Jessica's shoe line, created with her partner in footwear crime George Malkemus, the longtime CEO at Manolo Blahnik, will drop in Nordstrom stores on 28th February. Manolo's NYFW debut and the arrival of Sarah Jessica Parker's Mary Janes in the very same month? Sounds like the ultimate shoe off to us!
If Carrie Bradshaw taught us anything it's that Manolos stilettos are made for stomping NY sidewalks. Take a look at Mr Blahnik's fan club in the gallery below, from Sarah Jessica to Victoria Beckham to Nicole Richie...
