The Bata Shoe Museum (BSM) located in Toronto officially opened the highly anticipated travelling exhibition 'Manolo Blahnik: The Art of Shoes', on Wednesday.
The exhibit, which is hosting its final and only North American stop at the Bata, will be on display through January 6, 2019.
The retrospective features over 200 shoes and 80 original drawings from the footwear designer reflecting his personal journey, inspirations and achievements, from over the last four decades.
The exhibit is ultimately divided into four sections including a space dedicated to his collection of Marie Antoinette shoes, created for Sofia Coppola's 2006 film Marie Antoinette.
Other highlights include exclusive footage of the artist at work, as well as rare examples of Blahnik's celebrated drawings and sketches.
Prior to its stop in Toronto, Manolo Blahnik: The Art of Shoes, was showcased at venues in Milan, St. Petersburg, Prague and Madrid.
To complement the exhibition, the Bata Shoe Museum is also presenting other programming celebrating the exhibition, including exclusive tours, workshops and a film series.
