Manolo Blahnik: A Fashion Fairy Tale Memoir

Posted: Updated:

Manolo Blahnik's life has not been a fairy tale. The famed Spanish shoe designer has struggled recently to compete with popular platform designers such as Christian Louboutin and others, yet Carrie Bradshaw's favorite has made a comeback.

How did couture cobbler find such success? Author Camilla Morton reinvents the magical story in "Manolo Blahnik and the Tale Of The Elves And The Shoemaker." The latest installment of her "Once Upon A Time" series, Morton looks back at Blahnik's real life fairy tale. The designer himself illustrated the memoir, adding a level of visual whimsy to the story.

"Manolo Blahnik and the Tale of the Elves and the Shoemaker" is currently available from Amazon.com for $21.99. For a preview of the book and some of Blahnik's illustrations, take a peek in the gallery below:
