On 21 November a second Camilla Morton’s book, Manolo Blahnik's the Elves and the Shoemaker: A Fashion Fairytale, was finally available. Of course, I had to order it not only because I’ve already got the first fairy tale, but because I simply wanted to own this very special and beautifully illustrated edition – it felt like living a magical moment all over again, going on an exciting journey with Manolo Blahnik, see his memories come alive and learning about yet another amazing person who made a huge impact on fashion history.

  1. What a lovely surprise! I was just reading about the book yesterday and dreaming of it. What fashion lover wouldn't want a fashion fairy tale for Christmas? What a wonderful gift, my dear! And you know, on December 6th we celebrate Saint Nicholas, a day all children (and not only) are waiting for, so a fairy tale book offered in day like that seems almost magical. :)

  13. This is such a wonderful present! I loved Manolo's creations and his illustrations are equally beautiful! I remember when he did a collaboration with Liberty of London and I got one of his silk scarves, which I gave as a Christmas present to a dear friend...Have a great week-end!
