HOT FLASH: Shoe Fever


HOT FLASH: Shoe Fever

There is a new designer on the scene at Saks Fifth Avenue Sarasota. The store celebrated its launch of Manolo Blahnik with an exclusive first-look party Wednesday, Dec. 4, in the shoe department.

Fashion columnist Heather Dunhill (rocking a pair of Manolos, of course!) hosted the event and first-look shoppers enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and drinks, such as white cranberry martinis, while trying on shoes from the Manolo Blahnik Resort 2014 Collection. "Man-olo" men carried trays of Manolo pumps and offered guests compact mirrors wrapped in the Manolo Blahnik at Saks Sarasota launch logo.

Pastries by Design created an incredible cake, a red Manolo pump atop a shoebox — it looked so real that a customer grabbed the shoe, breaking it in half. 

Spotted shopping at the event were Lesley-Ann Morris and her mother Dorothea, Felice Schulaner and Kyla Weiner, who treated herself to a pair of nude pumps.
