Manolo Blahnik´s shoes are known worldwide for their inimitable style and outstanding quality. The Spanish Designer proposals have conquered the heart of many fashionistas and celebrities around the world since he started creating his fascinating shoes! Some of his biggest fans are Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Melania Trump, and, Sarah Jessica Parker (of course), among others.

If you also love his work and creations, now you have the opportunity to take a closer (and deeper) look to Manolo Blahnik´s shoes and to learn more about the designer: Last 28th of November, The Decorative Arts Museum of Madrid presented an exhibition devoted to the Artist and Designer that will last until the 8th of March of 2018 and which showcases Manolo Blahnik´s universe!

The name of this unprecedented exhibition is “The Art of Shoes” and it has been arranged by VOGUE Spain with the collaboration of Manolo Blahnik himself.

We have visited this blow-minding exhibition and we totally recommend it to you!!! The 212 shoes and 80 freehand drawings presented at the exhibition will leave you astounded!

The exhibition is divided in six different areas that marked the Designer´s work: Art, Architecture, Nature, Geography, Jewellery and Culture. Manolo Blahnik´s shoes have always been considered Pieces of Art and therefore, the Designer took inspiration from all these 6 areas!

If you visit The Art of Shoes exhibition you will feel transported to Manolo Blahnik Universe. But be careful: you will also feel like shopping a pair of Manolos right after leaving the exhibition. And this is something just Carrie Bradshaw (and a few other lucky ones) can afford!
