Building On A Legacy And Remaining Relevant To A New Age

15 Mar 2023

Trained in architecture, Kristina Blahnik stepped into the CEO role for her uncle’s name-sake brand in 2009. Growing up within the brand, keeping the brand close to the originating family ideals that it began with, to becoming a CEO of a brand set for the future, has been an incredible journey. 

Protecting the vision of Manolo whilst evolving with a fashion and retail world that is changing at breakneck speed, this exclusive session will explore the past, present and future of this incredible legacy. 

Join Kristina as she explores the need to focus on a plan to protect the legacy with responsibility at its core – and how the foundations of an incredible history can sprout the buds of a new, disruptive and inventive brand
