george_anthony_Page_2About our guests: George Malkemus and Anthony Yurgaitis are the co-founders of Manolo Blahnik USA. They began the business with Mr. Blahnik in 1982 as sole licensees for the Americas. Recently, George and Tony have started a new company with Sarah Jessica Parker called SJP USA. Ms. Parker has designed a shoe, bag and trench collection exclusively for Nordstrom, which was launched this past March. When they are not involved in fashion they are at their farm in Litchfield, Connecticut, overseeing 400 dairy cows, a creamery, a retail shop, and a new restaurant called Arethusa al tavolo. Whatever endeavor they undertake, their mission statement is always to be passionate about what they do, to provide the best quality products and to contribute excellent service to their customers and community.
