Nicholas Kirkwood is a man who needs no introduction. The Central Saint Martins graduate launched his eponymous brand in 2005, and has built his label of highly-coveted shoes with his genius use of unconventional materials and couture-like techniques. He has been presented with numerous awards from fashion accreditations and was the first accessories designer to ever be awarded the British Fashion Council x Vogue Designer Fashion Fund.

Fashion legends such as the late Isabella Blow, Grace Jones and Daphne Guinness are loyal friends of the house, and his shoes been worn by style icons ranging from Rihanna to Gwyneth Paltrow. Nicholas' shoes have an iconic architectural appeal to them, and his pearl accents—most likely adorning the heels of his creations, have become the label’s trademark.
