MANOLO BLAHNIK TO RECIEVE OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENT AWARD

Manolo Blahnik CBE will receive the Outstanding Achievement Award at this year’s British Fashion Awards. 
The BFA Outstanding Achievement Award each year celebrates and recognises one designer, who throughout their career, has made an impact on the global fashion industry.
Manolo Blahnik is one of the world’s most influential footwear designers, whose name is synonymous with luxury elegant and fashion forward shoes.  
With a career spanning almost 40 years,  and has been British Fashion Awards Accessory Designer of the Year three times in 1990, 1999 and 2003.

“It is a great honour to be receiving this award from the British Fashion Council,” said Blahnik. “To be recognised for doing something I love is really wonderful.”

With fans spanning from Hollywood’s most famous leading ladies (Sarah Jessica Parker) leading fashionistas (Victoria Beckham), Pop Stars (Madonna once described wearing her Manolos as “better than sex”!) and First Ladies (Michelle Obama) we think it was about time Mr. Blahnik was bestowed with this award!
