If you’re as big a shoe addict as Carrie Bradshaw, then Manolo Blahnik’s new documentary is a must watch for you! MANOLO (The boy who made shoes for lizards) takes a behind the scenes peek at the glamorous world of one of the most revered figures in fashion.
With a career spanning over 40 years, Manolo Blahnik has become one of the world’s most influential footwear designers. His unique and iconic shoe designs have mesmerized adoring fans across the globe, including the likes of Nicole Kidman, Rihanna, and The Duchess of Cambridge. His exquisitely crafted heels are perfected with his very own hands to create unique and distinct styles.
“Shoes,” Blahnik says, “help transform a woman.”
The documentary feature film, directed by Michael Roberts and owned by Content Media, is currently in production and will be presented to distributors during the European Film Market in late February. Roberts commented, “Having known Manolo for over 30 years, I can say he is a multifaceted intellectual and romantic whose engaging mind and ingenious work is made for entertaining cinema.”
The film will feature appearances from a number of A-List celebrities and fashion connoisseurs like Anna Wintour, Andre Leon, Rihanna, Iman, Naomi Campbell and Isaac Mizrahi- just to name a few.
“Manolo Blahnik is fashion royalty and the king of his craft. He also happens to be a wonderfully colorful and fascinating man, with a unique worldview. Michael Roberts is a director with unparalleled access and understanding of the fashion world and the combination of both these golden elements will make for fabulous and fascinating cinema,” Content Media’s President of Film commented.
