IL Duomo Welcomes Nicholas Kirkwood
il Duomo welcomes to our roster one of the most globally acknowledged modern day shoe designers, Nicholas Kirkwood. Following his time at Central Saint Martins London and an apprenticeship under legendary fashion milliner Philip Treacy, the designer officially launched his namesake brand in 2005 with the intention of launching a shoe brand with a couture feel that inspires and empowers 21st century women to look and feel extraordinary. Since his launch, his shoe designs have become a prominent silhouette within the fashion industry. His use of unconventional materials such as his signature pearls and studs that give each shoe produced an extra couture touch needed to distinguish them from everything else. The designer has also recently begun a journey towards achieving sustainability with the intentions of improving the environmental impacts within the luxury footwear field.
