News is circulating that everybody’s favourite shoe designer, Nicholas Kirkwood, might be following in the footsteps of Christopher Kane and acquiring new investors for his business.
Rumours have been coming out of Paris that the brand has already met with big-time groups like LVMH. It would be a smart move for Kirkwood's business, which has only been in operation since 2005. While it is a huge achievement to win the 2012 BFC/ Vogue Fashion Fund designer prize, a solid backer (like Kane got with his PPR deal), could take the designer's expansion to new heights — we’re talking way more than five inches.(WWD)
