Last year the platform introduced a new dedicated collaboration with Manolo Blahnik, Mend My Manolos, that provides aftercare for Manolo customers – re-heeling, re-soling, dyeing and restoration – all undertaken by skilled artisans. “If there’s a way of reworking something that you can use again, then I think it’s I think it’s a good idea,” notes Julia.
