About Nicholas Kirkwood
Nicholas Matthew Kirkwood was born in Munster, Germany, on July 10 1980. He completed the Fine Art foundation course at Central Saint Martins in 1998-9.
Kirkwood was offered a job in hat designer Philip Treacy‘s London store after the pair met on a skiing trip to Klosters in 1999. He worked there for five years.
During this time, he lived with the late legendary magazine editor Isabella Blow. Blow was a muse of Treacy‘s. She is credited with discovering fashion designer Alexander McQueen.
Feeling that there was a gap in the market for statement shoes that were in the same league as the hats designed by Treacy, and the clothes being designed by Alexander McQueen and Hussein Chalayan, he enrolled at Cordwainers in 2001. He dropped out after one year – having learned “footwear making.”
