Nicholas Kirkwood Confirms Via BBM That He Was Just Acquired by LVMH

Nicholas Kirkwood and I at Saks Fifth Avenue, Bal Harbour Shops.

This morning while filming a local TV segment for NBC 6 on fashion, I received a message to my BlackBerry (yes, I still use the good ‘ol bb) that Nicholas Kirkwood, my darling friend was just acquired by LVMH. So what is a girl to do besides be uber happy for my CFDA award winning love? Well, I BBM’d him. I guess after all, some real deal people still do use that phone with a keypad.

What is more interesting? The fact that he was just bought out by LVMH or the fact that he is on my BBM? I think both are as equally as divine. Congrats Nikki.

Nicholas and I met through my great friend Kim Doura Murdoch two years ago in London. I ended up in his apartment with Beau Beasley and that was the beginning to a lovely friendship where we keep in touch if I am in Europe or when he is in Miami. On his last visit in early 2013 after his personal appearance at Saks Fifth Avenue, he and I went to dinner at SoHO Beach House’s Cecconi’s followed by some lovely cigarettes on the second floor.

I BBM’d him this morning, asking him if the rumor was true, and he replied “It’s true, I’m French now. X.”

To the hautest shoe designer on the globe…. Mazel Tov, Mabrook and Congrats!
