Manolo Blahnik Exhibit (BFA 2013)

As part of the British Fashion Awards I designed and built a 360° installation to honour the shoe designer, Manolo Blahnik, who received the designers’ award for outstanding achievement in fashion.

Situated within the Savoy Hotel’s birdcage, it featured over 500x Blahnik shoeboxes, which were stacked around a grand piano.

For the display I adapted and redesigned a selection of the shoeboxes, turning them into perspex display plinths that showcased 7x of his classic shoes, installed miniature projectors to display moving images and light boxes to highlight his sketches.
