Manolo Blahnik Celebrates the Brand’s 50-Year Anniversary With an Exhibition
Manolo Blahnik has recently turned 50. And in order to celebrate the anniversary, the brand held the afternoon soirée. At the event, A New Way of Walking was presented and accompanied by the Krysta Rodriguez performance.
The digital experience featured five different rooms to discover the house’s archives. The traditional idea of an archive with the designer’s legacy was turned into an interactive experience full of color and humor. At the gallery, 80 of Blahnik’s creations were showcased that were followed by captions and quotes. In each separate section, there were film clips, newspaper cuttings, portraits, and personal photographs.
The visitors celebrated the show with the brand’s archives drinking tea at Dowling’s at the Carlyle. On Wednesday’s menu, there were small sandwiches, gold macaroons, and mini scones. The invited guests remembered all the happy moments, as well as talked about the brand’s future.
Unfortunately, the designer himself didn’t attend the festive event but he is looking forward to coming to the USA and continuing the celebration. And of course, there will be a new shoe collection soon to mark this occasion. The line of glistening gold pieces will consist of a range of new styles mixed with classics.
