Posted Thursday January 30, 2014 12:12 PM GMT

Ready to step things up across the pond, Manolo Blahnik is on the heels of his first showcase at New York Fashion Week.

After a hiatus, the famed footwear designer returned to London Fashion Week this past September where he presented a short film at the Covent Garden Hotel in London. Due to the success of the show, the 71-year-old is eager for more.

“I want to share in detail how my mind and imagination work and where I get my inspiration from,” Blahnik told WWD

“New York is a very exciting city and I have a special sentiment towards it since it was the first place to make my shoes available to women outside of London," Manolo added.

Blahnik's presentation is scheduled to take place on February 9 from 11AM to 2PM (EST) at a gallery in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan.ra
