Coming to America
Nicholas Kirkwood kicked off New York Fashion Week with a personal appearance at Saks Fifth Avenue and stayed the weekend to see his shoes on the runway at Prabal Gurung and to “crack the whip” on the construction of his forthcoming New York store. But it’s not all about work, he told Footwear News. “I’m looking forward to seeing The Kills perform,” Kirkwood said. The designer also collaborated on footwear at Suno, but had to return to London before that show. At Saks, the designer was mobbed with fans taking pictures and asking for his autograph. Though notoriously shy, Kirkwood happily engaged crowds in the eighth-floor shoe salon past the scheduled end time until finally, he was escorted off the floor. “I am very pleasantly surprised with the turnout,” said Tracy Margolies, VP and DMM of women’s footwear at Saks. “Needless to say, we really believe in Nicholas.”
