With a degree, or without, Manolo Blahnik will always shut it down in the shoe game!
The footwear designer will receive an honorary degree from the Vice-Chancellor of Bath Spa University on July 21 in recognition of his incredible contribution to the fashion industry.
Blahnik says of his degree:
"It is a great honor for me to be associated with such a wonderful institution which is Bath Spa University. I really adore Bath and everything that is there."
Manolo reportedly fell head-over-heels with the university when he visited the school with Vogue's creative director Grace Coddington in 1983.
And now, decades later, the luxury shoe maker has fallen even deeper in love with Bath Spa now that he's been given a special tribute.
Mr. Blahnik is surely going down in history as one of the best fashion pioneers!
