Following the footsteps of Christian Lacroix who launched fairytale-like biography titled as Sleeping Beauty last February, Manolo Blahnik teamed up with Camilla Morton for his own fairytale book called "The Elves and the Shoemaker".
"The book is a mix of biography and fairy story. It is a blend of Manolo's life - from his childhood on the banana plantation to his store in Chelsea today - mixed with the tale of The Elves and the Shoemaker. Fashion designers are too magical for a straightforward biography, so what better than to mix with well-known 'Once Upon a Times' - and the finishing touch, asking the designers themselves to illustrate their story." ~ Camilla Morton
