As the business brains behind the commercial success of Nicholas Kirkwood , Christopher Suarez has overseen the young label’s meteoric rise as one of the industry’s most celebrated luxury footwear brands. In September 2013, it was announced that luxury goods conglomerate LVMH had taken a majority stake in the label.

Suarez and Kirkwood formed a partnership after Suarez stumbled on Kirkwood's booth at Première Classe, a Parisian accessories tradeshow. Suarez began implementing the strategic retail strategies that have seen the Nicholas Kirkwood label launch standalone stores in London’s (2011), quickly New York and Las Vegas.

In 2013, the brand also launched an e-commerce platform with worldwide shipping.
