There are two kinds of achieving internationalization dear to the Spanish fashion. The first is gathering friends at a press conference and the second is to work with Manolo Blahnik and climb onto the catwalk in a city like Madrid. Gateway will have the honor of having first by a Spanish company with lso Blahnik shoes. And all this has been achieved since Alvarno. No press conferences, to make matters worse.
Internationalization, big time, with the capital letter and the accent well marked the end because achieving collaboration with Manolo Blahnik and is not anything. It is no coincidence that one of the designers most beloved by those in shoes has not gone so far to a gateway in Spain. Furthermore, it should be a concern for fashion brands.
As much as these have tried for years to try to Manolo Blahnik shoes that would rise diseñase to Cybele, the firm refused to such collaboration. He saw the quality required for binding. Meanwhile, another wore a Gaultier Blahnik, Dior, Oscar de la Renta, Thakoon ... Hence Alvarno achieving even more prominent.
When everything should be easier in the union of Manolo Blahnik with Spanish fashion, since he was born in Santa Cruz de la Palma, in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Canary Islands, although that has its headquarters in London and has developed his career there, we had to wait until 2013 to see this collaboration.
Alvarno still fly free, no associations, no ifemas or subsidies but with internationalization and big fashion names supporting them. Coincidence? No. Job well done.
From this union with Manolo Blahnik and more talked a few days ago in an interview Alvarno I preached . I do not forget it, stay tuned because it will come out soon and it's always very interesting to listen to designers and Arnaud Maillard Castejón Alvaro. In the words of the couple according to the press release:
It is a real honor as a designer Manolo Blahnik, who deeply admired, wants to participate with their creations in our next show. Our goal has always been to go for surprise in our proposals, through exclusive designs and special collaborations, as we will see in the next show with the legendary Hall of Manolo Blahnik.
