You may have heard of Manolo's, simply Manolo's, like most American women, from the hit show, "Sex The City," where they were spoken of with such reverence that it was almost Biblical. In fact, when Big proposed to Carrie, he slipped a gorgeous cobalt blue Manolo on her foot instead of a big gorgeous rock on her finger. But what are Manolo's, where did they come from? Or a better question is, who are Manolo's? Who Is Manolo Blahnik?Manolo Blahnik was born on November 27, 1942 in Santa Cruz de La Palma in the Canary Islands. Perhaps it was the beauty of the Islands, perhaps it was his creative Spanish mother who designed and created her own evening shoes, who knows, but Blahnik because interested in shoe design at an early age. Blahnik ended up at the University of Geneva in Switzerland and then moved to Paris where he studied art at L'Ecole des Beaux Arts and L'Ecole du Louvre. He then made a fateful move to London, securing a position at a store called "Zapata", which means "shoe" in Spanish, although he also wrote for Italian Vogue on the side. Encouraged by Diana Vreeland, the American editor of Vogue who saw his portfolio of designs, he turned his attention to designing only shoes. Manolos Rise In PopularityHis work quickly became known in the area and the likes of Bianca Jagger and countless other jet setters, movie stars, royalty, and socialites became steady clients. Manolo borrowed 2000 pounds and bought out Zapata, so he could start his own store. He had no formal training in making shoes like Jimmy Choo or any of the other famous shoe designer of today, yet the clients came in droves. Part of the reason was that Blahnik painstakingly labored over every shoe design, making sure not only that it was beautiful, but also comfortable. He has been credited for bringing back the stiletto heel during the 70's in an era when women were wearing huge platforms and bulky clogs. The flamboyant sixties era Britsh fashion designer Ossie Clark asked Blahnik to create what would be his first collection for a runway show which would be the first of many runway shows for Blahnik. In 1974, he was asked to pose for the cover of British Vogue Magazine and was the first man ever to do so. Heel heights can average five inches, colors can range from shocking pink to zebra to bright blue and anything in between, including neon. Strappiness and cut outs are the norm for Manolos, as well as amazing textures, including ribbons and lace, and outrageous patterns. In an odd act of defiance, Princess Diana wore a pair of very high heel Manolos to the Serpentine Gallery the very night Prince Charles went on television to publicly admit his affair with Camilla Parker Bowles. 378037 117 Kids Air Jordan 11 Legend Blue White Black Legend Blue ,Air Jordan 3 Retro True Blue 2011 Air Jordan 3 Black History Month Black Metallic Gold 136064 004 Women Size Air Jordan 3 Retro Wolf Grey Air Jordan 5Lab3 Silver Air Jordan 5 Retro Black Varsity Red Metallic Silver 653972 500 Kobe 9 EM 543390 127 Women Size Air Jordan 6 GS Grape 656503 501 Air Jordan Future Dark Concord Dark Concord White 656503 720 Air Jordan Future Volt White L R: Natural Sciences Conservator Simon Moore and Objects Conservator Natalie Ison during an inspection of a Thylacine wet specimen at the National Museum of Australia in Canberra.

Even though today we are more health conscious than ever before it is even more important to be seen wearing the hot new fashions or living in that trendy new neighborhood. In today's society many people allow their opinion of themselves to be effected by what other people think of them. Meaning if other people think you are fun and exciting, your self image improves, but if people feel you are old fashion and boring then your self esteem will plummet. The glasses you wear out of the house help tell people who you are or more accurate the glasses help you tell people who you want them to think that you are. There are many different styles of glasses out there and each one of them says something from, I will come home every day after work and I am very dependable, to watch out I am trouble and everything in between. Today having one pair of glasses are not enough. You need to be able to match your glasses to your look, and the prescription glasses you wear to work are not going to be the ones you wear when you go to the club. But it's not about just having one pair for the office and one for fun or having different colors to go with different clothes. It is about having people act differently to you depending on the situation. Let's say you are going into a meeting with clients and you are trying to get them to invest in your business. Then you are going to want to display confidence, intelligence, and give an air of success the proper pair of glasses will help you to radiate the impression that you are all of these things and one people react to you as you are these things you will become these things. You may not believe this but it is a proven fact in the world of psychiatry that making the slightest change in our appearance can change the way people view us and thru this the way we view ourselves. And there is no simpler way to change your appearance than with a new pair of eyeglasses. Many people think that it may be too expensive to buy several different pairs of prescription eyeglasses, but today you can go online and find discount eyeglasses at as much as 70% off, making it much more affordable to own many different pairs of eyeglasses in several styles and colors. This is really no different than clothes. Do you own just one pair of shoes? I'll bet you own many different pairs of shoes in different styles and colors. This is so you have a selection of shoes for different occasions, glasses are no different.

In these individuals many skin, bony, muscle and joint conditions exist due to abnormal collagen development. One of the types of collagen (Type VI) is encoded by a gene on chromosome 21. The resulting effect is increased joint laxity or looseness of the ligaments that attach bone to bone or tendons that attach muscles to bone (hypotonia of muscles). The ligamentous laxity and hypotonia will then lead to multiple conditions encountered in the feet of a Down syndrome individual. These conditions are then further aggravated by the pressures of walking and the play of gravity on the feet. Some feet may also present with a larger than normal space between the great toe and the second toe. Although these conditions are not medically problematic, shoegear and walking can aggravate these conditions and produce further problems, especially with the increasing life expectancy of these individuals over time. Conditions Encountered with Down Syndrome: Pes Planus, or flat feet, are commonly encountered with Down syndrome. In fact, this foot type will be seen in the vast majority of individuals. This condition may present with neutral gait (no excessive flattening of the arch) in mild cases or may be aggravated by the hypotonia and allow severe pronation (flattening of the feet). In both cases, an orthotic or custom insert for the shoes can support the flattening of the foot against gravity and produce a more ideal walking (gait) pattern. This will reduce fatigue and allow the individual to remain active and more involved. Another problem with Pes Planus is the poor fitting of shoes. Standard insoles in shoes will irritate the feet and may cause increased callus formation, increased fatigue to the feet and may lead to decreased activity. Orthotics again could assist with this difficulty. Metatarsus Adductus, or turning of the metatarsals (mid part of foot behind the toes) toward the inside of the foot, may be encountered especially with the first metatarsal or the metatarsal of the great toe (Metatarsus Primus Varus). This condition can be aggravated in the foot and may lead to painful prominences to the inside of the foot called a bunion deformity. Early cases, especially if mild, can be treated with orthotics as discussed earlier. More severe cases may require surgical correction. My recommendation is to progress to surgery if the foot is painful and limiting ability to stay active and/or function in normal life. Hammertoes, or contracting of the little toes can also be present over time due to the hypotonia of the muscles. This condition can treated with padding, orthotics or surgical correction depending on the extent of the problem. The most common cause of pain from hammertoes is rubbing of the toes on the shoes. Callus formation is also commonly encountered due to some collagen changes in the skin, bony prominences from changes in the feet structure or just the gait (walking) pattern of the feet. It is recommended that care should be utilized to decrease pressure by wearing correct shoegear, adjusting insoles through orthotics and/or trimming of calluses if they become increased in thickness. Some lotions may also help, including a commonly recommended lotion in our office called Atractain. The goal of foot care in an individual of any age with Down syndrome is to optimize what they were born with and keep them active. As stated previously, this can be done by correct shoegear, custom orthotics and surgery in rare situations. The Down syndrome foot is a unique entity, but can fully function and carry the individual through a fulfilling life.
