Manolo Blahnik - Manolo Blahnik makes London Fashion Week debut

Manolo Blahnik has finally made his London Fashion Week debut.

The 70-year-old shoe designer took so long to partake in the bi-annal event because because it never felt ''right'', but he was excited to unveil his spring/summer 2014 collection in the English capital yesterday (15.09.13).

He told British Vogue magazine: ''Firstly, I am terrified of crowds. I owed it to the organisers, I had been invited to take part so many times but it never felt right.

''London Fashion Week has changed so much recently though; it is so professional now and I really think it is one of the most exciting in the world.''

The star has created a five-minute short film with Michael Roberts, which features Rupert Everett, and he hopes it will appeal to people as if reflects the technological society we live in.

He explained: ''Everything is becoming so transparent with all this technology, with the blogs and tweets, and I wanted to get more in touch with normal people.''

Although he is a respected name in the fashion industry, Manolo is still nervous about the reception his new collection and film will receive from critics.

He added: ''I am nervous, but I know it's just entertainment with some sort of thread. I worry about everything though, I am an eternal tortured creative. I feel perpetually anxious, but I've learnt to deal with it - that's my advantage.''
