After a 22-years legal battle, Manolo Blahnik has won and will finally be able to use his trademark in China. The British designer, who became famous thanks to the TV series Sex and the City, has obtained the exclusive right on his shoe brand in China. The trademark was illegally registered by Chinese businessman Fang Yuzhou. The highest Chinese court, with a rare judgement, annulled the counterparty trademark and therefore the British company will be able to start selling in China. «It was a huge hole in our existence - Kristina Blahnik, managing director of Manolo Blahnik and grandson of the founder, commented - When we received the phone call we shed real tears ».
