Fashion writer Camilla Morton plays on the fact that high-fashion and fantasy are one and the same in her Fashion Fairy Tale Memoir series, combining the magical life of a famed fashion designer with a well-known fairy tale. Following the success of Christian Lacroix and the Tale of the Sleeping Beauty, Morton brings us the next book in the series, this time focusing on her friend and mentor Manolo Blahnik. The inspiring life of the shoe maven is blended with the fairy tale “The Elves and the Shoemaker” and depicted through some whimsical illustrations by the designer himself. Blahnik’s drawings follow his remarkable journey from the banana plantations of his childhood in the Canary Islands to his current domination of the high-fashion footwear industry. The result is a unique kind of memoir that is just as magical and as covetable as a pair of the designer’s carefully-crafted high heels.
Manolo Blahnik and the tale of the Elves and the Shoemaker is out tomorrow.
