The trademark for me is the woman who wears the shoe.

Rodeo Drive Resale (http://www.shoprdr.com), premier reseller of 100% authentic discount Manolo Blahnik heels, Christian Dior pumps and Louis Vuitton handbags and other designer shoes, continues its special designer heel promotion and highlights a recent interview by luxury fashion favorite Manolo Blahnik, adored around the world for his stylish stilettos.
In addition to discussing his personal design style, Blahnik shared his distaste for platform shoes, comparing them to large, bulky living room furniture.
“I tried to do platforms I really did, but ugh!” He explained to British magazine Grazia. Blahnik’s heels are a far cry from platform shoes, eliciting a sleek and sultry look that has made him a fan favorite for many years. According to Blahnik, he knew crafting platform shoes would never be his arena for upscale design. “They were so ugly like monstrous foot furniture, I knew it could never be for me. So I made thin heels and people loved them.”
The 69-year-old fashion designer then recalled a design that he found especially displeasing.
“I once did these shoes in the most disgusting, vile fluorescent green with nasty yellow effects - I mean you can see it now in the Lanvin collection," Manolo said. "These colours are horrific.”
Despite the widespread counterfeiting of his heels, Blahnik revealed that he no longer worries about the flood of knockoffs on the market.
“The trademark for me is the woman who wears the shoe. I used to get upset about rip-offs but these days I couldn't care less,” Manolo said. “When I see it, I laugh. This is co-py! Not Manolo Blahnik. Noo!”
Blahnik’s heels received an international boost in popularity following their role as the highly coveted heels on the HBO series, “Sex and the City.”
“I adore Ms. Parker,” Blahnik said about “Sex in the City” star Sarah Jessica Parker during a May 2009 interview with VOGUE.COM. “The character she played has had such a role in my career - I cannot help but regard both of them as muses! I adore cinema generally and a large chunk of my collections is inspired by it. It could be a character, a scene, or just the spirit of a movie. I watch them all night long.”
