Manolo: The Boy Who Made Shoes for Lizardsan in-depth portrait of legendary fashion designer Manolo Blahnikwill premiere locally at the Music Box Theatre, 3733 N. Southport Ave., on Friday, Sept. 22
Growing up on a remote Spanish Canary island, Manolo made shoes out of sweet wrappers for lizards that he caught in his family's garden. After opening his first store in London in 1973 and coming of age in fashion capitals such as Paris and New York, Blahnik now has shops and department-store concessions in more than 20 countries and retains full control of the business, still creating every shoeeven hand-carving the wooden forms himself.
Director/longtime fashion journalist Michael Roberts presents this never-before-seen peek into Blahnik's world, featuring entertainment/fashion figures such as Anna Wintour, Rihanna, Paloma Picasso, Iman, Naomi Campbell, Rupert Everett, Karlie Kloss, Isaac Mizrahi and Andre Leon Talley.
