Manolo Blahnik Makes LFW Debut.
MANOLO BLAHNIK is coming to London Fashion Week. The footwear designer will make his debut on the London schedule this coming season.
Blahnik will host a presentation on Sunday September 15 from 10am until 4pm - the same day that the new spring/summer 2014 collections from Mulberry, L'Wren Scott, Mary Katrantzou, Jonathan Saunders and Topshop Unique will also be unveiled. No further details on Blahnik's presentation are yet known, with a venue yet to be confirmed.
"Everybody now makes a point of coming to London - which is very different to Milan and Paris," he told us previously. "London is now so important to all these international buyers. London is the future."
While he's never held an official spot on the schedule, the Spanish-born designer was heavily involved in last season's London Fashion Week - responsible for all the imagery used across campaign and marketing material, a collaboration he said was a tribute to his late friend, Anna Piaggi. Blahink was also awarded the British Fashion Award for Outstanding Achievement in 2012.
