Nicky Haslam

My friend Nicky Haslam, having launched it first in the UK, just published his latest book, A Designer’s Life, with Rizzoli Publications in New York. His books go down extraordinarily well as do his creative English wit and his acute observations.

After being struck with Polio as a child he was Educated at England’s most elite institution, Eton College, but he has never really accepted a straight and narrow path. He has always followed his keen eye and open heart. His progress will have caused many an establishment eyebrow to raise: a significant period as a Cowboy was followed (with as much energy and panache) as a photographer. His design persona then took over, creating interiors and parties for clients such as Natalie Wood. With a generous dose of belief that the world is his oyster, Nicky Haslam doesn’t recognize arbitrary limits or limitations, and so his biography now includes many accolades – author, gossip columnist and (most excitingly for me) cabaret performer… I managed to pin him down for 15 minutes for this interview…
