Nicholas Kirkwood Wins BFC/Vogue Fashion Fund Award
BFA View Gallery
(NEW YORK) Nicholas Kirkwood just garnered another layer of industry cred to add to his glowing rep: The designer took home the Birtish Fashion Council/Vogue Fashion Fund award in London this evening. The designer beat out a talented group of designers including Mary Katrantzou, Peter Pilotto, Emilia Wickstead and Roksanda Ilincic to score the accolade. The award allows for Kirkwood to benefit from a bespoke business program and senior-level mentors that will aid his business over the next 18-months. If the past is any indication of what Kirkwood has in store, Christopher Kane, who was the second recepient to receive the award, was recently acquired by fashion behemoth PPR. Yet another step forward in Kirkwood's rapidly growing biz and he may have some big shoes to fill in his future, if his predecessors are any indication. Bonne chance!
