Nicholas Kirkwood produced his first eponymous collection for spring/summer 2005.
In April 2005, he took his collection to New York to show to the fashion press. While there, the shoes came to the attention of Visionaire's Cecilia Dean, who loved them. She was intrinsic in aligning Kirkwood with Rodarte - for whom he has been creating show shoes since spring/summer 2009.
He opened his first standalone concession space at London's Dover Street Market in July 2009.
In late 2009, Kirkwood collaborated with Swarovski to design the Nicholas Kirkwood for Atelier Swarovski jewellery collection.
For autumn/winter 2010-2011, he will launch a dedicated Nicholas Kirkwood space at On Pedder Joyce in Hong Kong.
