Nicholas Kirkwood

An alumnus of prestigious design schools, Central St. Martins and Cordwainers College, 31-year-old British Designer Nicholas Kirkwood launched his eponymous collection in Spring 2005. The collection of architecturally inspired pieces with a blend of genres subverting the relationship between tradition and modernity instantly won the attention of Grace Jones, Daphne Guiness, and the late Isabella Blow as well as rave reviews from industry insiders. He was awarded the Footwear Designer of the Year award by Condé Nast’s Footwear News Publication in 2008 and again in 2011.
