Manolo Blahnik's Liberty Worry

Manolo Blahnik admits he's terrified about his collaboration with Liberty's.

The shoe designer has agreed to curate the famous London store's Christmas decorations and windows, as well as selling his Autumn/Winter collection from a pop-up shop there for three months.

He will also be designing hats and scarves from the shop, although doesn't like it described as a "pop-up".

He said: "I hate that word - pop-up - it's so spitty. But it's the first time I've done anything like it and I'm a bit terrified, but I'm doing it because I love this building and I've been using Liberty prints forever."

Earlier this week, Manolo was a guest at British royal residence Buckingham Palace as Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip hosted an event to celebrate UK fashion.

Although, he is a huge fan of the queen's fashion sense, he says he wasn't inspired by the palace.

He told vogue.com: "I had a wonderful time. I was chatting with David Bailey non-stop. You know what he's like - so nasty but so funny. Everybody was thrilled to be there - the queen is just divine - she has entirely her own personal style and nobody can change her, it would be like trying to change a saint or an icon. She is tiny but beautiful and she looks just amazing.

"I can't say I was inspired by the evening as such - to me all palaces really look the same - but of course this one is full of the most divine paintings. At events like this I don't observe so much as absorb the surroundings - I was too busy having fun. It was a very relaxing, divine party. It was a great honour for me to be there."
