An exclusive evening with a rare glimpse into the life and work of iconic shoe designer, Manolo Blahnik. A private man with a very public image, Blahnik is a titan of the contemporary fashion world and his vivid and creative-filled career has spanned more than forty years.
His lavish new book, Fleeting Gestures and Obsessions is the first comprehensive and sumptuously illustrated volume of his life and art with insightful chapters devoted to Blahnik’s most powerful relationships and inspirations. It features never-before-seen photography and more than 250 iconic designs from his archive.
