Starting at around $600 for ballerina flats, you have to be a serious shoe fiend or have serious amounts of money to slip into a pair of Manolos – especially when they go up to more than $1500.

The number of women that queued to get into the new Manolo Blahnik pop-up store at Liberty of London gave the impression they were giving the shoes away!

For these 200 women, Liberty of London became their Manolo Mecca because the designer himself was inside to meet them and sign whatever was given to him – Blahnik silk scarves, diaries, men's ties, books and of course shoes.

I had never met Manolo Blahnik before so I didn't know what to expect. Dressed in a bright purple suit with purple leather suede loafers to match, he greeted me with a smile as he threw his arms up and said 'so lovely to meet you!'.

With arms akimbo, Manolo gave a candid interview with vivacious modesty...a bit like his shoes. Having a snapshot of the designer's personality, it is, in this case, the man that maketh the Manolos.
