Looking dapper in a powder blue suit with a checkered bowtie, the 62-year-old Blahnik happily signed shoe after shoe while mugging for the cameras with excited fans. He was animated and jovial, and seemed genuinely appreciative of everyone who came, even making a point to thank each person for buying his shoes.
