Established in 1970 with the acquisition of its first boutique in Chelsea, London, Manolo Blahnik International Limited has evolved into a globally renowned brand. While its headquarters remain in London, the company has established offices and partnerships worldwide.
As a privately owned and family-run enterprise, Manolo Blahnik continues to serve as the Creative Director and Chairman of the brand. From 1981, he collaborated with his sister, Evangelina Blahnik, who held the role of Managing Director until 2013 when his niece, Kristina Hulsebus Blahnik, assumed the position of CEO. Presently, Kristina is focused on expanding and optimizing the business on a global scale, overseeing all aspects of the family venture.
With over 300 points of sale, including flagship boutiques in prominent locations such as New York City, Hong Kong, and Paris, Manolo Blahnik has established a strong presence worldwide. The company has also experienced significant growth in Asia through a partnership with the Bluebell Group, enabling expansion into markets like Japan, Malaysia, and most recently, a newly inaugurated flagship store situated in the heart of Singapore.
