More women will have the opportunity to feel like a princess thanks a commercial partnership with high street shoe retailer, Kurt Geiger. Blahnik also has concessions in Liberty and a boutique on Old Church St, Chelsea.

Hollywood celebrities including Sarah Jessica Parker, Charlize Theron and Rihanna love Blahnik’s creations. Fashionistas can expect more colorful thin pin heels of this luxury brand on the cobblestones streets of London.

Turning 70 this year, Blahnik has no intentions of retiring. After all, Giorgio Armani is 80 and still working successfully in the fashion industry.

Blahnik already has stores in New York, Athens, Dubai, Dublin, Hong Kong, Istanbul, Kuwait, Las Vegas, Madrid, Seoul, Singapore and Stockholm.
