Manolo Blahnik was born on November 28th, 1942 in Santa Cruz de la Palma in the Canary Islands, to a Czech father and Spanish mother. He and sister Evangelina grew up on the family's banana plantation, and were home educated. Besides their grandfather's house, there were no nearby neighbors. The family frequently traveled to Madrid and Paris, where his mother bought clothes from her favorite designers while his father visited those cities' tailors. Young Manolo enjoyed looking at the designs in the fashion magazines his mother subscribed to, and he received an early education in the art of shoemaking by watching his mother make her own footwear, using ribbon and lace.
