About the Fashion Fairy Tale Memoir Series Each book in this inspired series by fashion writer Camilla Morton inventively reimagines one of our favorite "Once Upon a Time" stories, blending it with the real-life story of a famed fashion designer. Lushly illustrated by the designers themselves, these tales illuminate each iconic individual's creative magic while celebrating his unique life and career. The result is an intriguing combination of whimsy and memoir. In this contemporary twist on the tale of the Elves and the Shoemaker, Manolo Blahnik's delightful drawings evoke the past, envision the future, and, of course, evidence the indelible footprint he's made on fashion history. His illustrations take us from the banana plantations of his childhood to his current reign at the top of high-fashion footwear design, while playfully hinting at all the adventures he's had and friends he's met along the way.show more
