Manolo Blahnik on Ossie Clark designs: I thought it was going to end my career

manoloblahnik-smallOssie Clark chose Manolo Blahnik‘s footwear for his 1972 runway show at The Royal Court Theatre in London, it was a move that he thought would end his career. “I thought it was going to end my career,” he told British Marie Claire. “The shoes I made for the show had a sole made of rubber and the heels didn’t have any spines, so they kept moving. The models were walking in a very strange way, luckily, people thought it was the new way of walking.” [FemaleFirst]

    I want to see this “new way of walking”! It must have been terrifying knowing what was on the line.
