Fashion icon, Manolo Blahnik, released a coloring booking featuring sketches of luxury designs for a fun craft project for everyone staying home in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19). Manolo Blahnik hopes to engage fans in the design process while inspiring them through coloring pages.
Manolo and Kristina Blahnik wanted to create an interactive activity as apart of the company’s SMILE project that launched last year. The SMILE project is working in partnership with the Mental Health Foundation, with the mission of helping people with management tips, acts of kindness, and working methods.
“Creative freedom is a form of escapism, something we need now more than ever,” – Manolo Blahnik
Blahnik hopes this simple initiative will bring a sense of calm, encouraging mindfulness through this difficult time in response to COVID-19. More people are encouraged to stay at home and practice social distancing, with more people getting inspired by crafts and DIY projects.
Manolo Blahnik is encouraging participants to share their creative work on social media with the hashtag #ManoloBlahnikSmiles for the chance to be featured on the brand’s channel. You can check out the fun coloring pages here.
