Made famous on TV show Sex and the City, shoe designer Manolo Blahnik is now the subject of a new documentary.

Anna Wintour, Rihanna, Paloma Picasso, Naomi Campbell and Sex and the City author Candace Bushnell are all slated to give interviews for the film, while Blahnik himself will be a part of the project.

The documentary, titled Manolo, will also feature dramatisations of the designers life, with Rupert Everett to play an adult Blahnik.

Manolo (The boy who made shoes for lizards) is being directed by Michael Roberts, who served as the New Yorker magazine's first fashion director and worked for Vogue, Vanity Fair, and Tatler.

"Having known Manolo for over 30 years, I can say he is a multifaceted intellectual and romantic whose engaging mind and ingenious work is made for entertaining cinema," Roberts said.

Roberts also directed and edited a movie about American Vogue's creative director Grace Coddington, and also co-authored her memoir.

The movie is currently in production.
