Natasha Koifman, President, NKPR. Toronto
Natasha Koifman is the PR empress behind the NKPR empire—and aside from her expertise in public relations, this girl knows a thing or two about shoes and Chanel. And, she’s got a glam good (and may we add, impressive!) collection to show for it. Her Double C archives (that’s Chanel for all you non-devotees) had us reminiscing of Saturday night’s at home watching “The Devil Wears Prada” on the W Network—I mean, she’s even got the Anne Hathaway pearls and newsboy cap to boot! Her au courant closet could not have been more on point with what we have been witnessing on the runways… and the thread continued throughout her oh-so-chic home. Although we do love ourselves a trinket-filled abode, it was Koifman’s minimalism that left us begging her for an invite back. And with all our friends there—Charlotte Olympia, Pierre Hardy, Karl, Alber—we felt right at home! Clad in her signature all-black, leather-infused uniform of names, names, names, she welcomed us in with open arms, cupcakes and wine. (Take note, Coveteur wannabees!) Although it was all fun and games, Koifman is a businesswoman in every sense of the word. We can’t tell you how much we admire this chick’s drive and goal to expand and conquer. She’s known for forging long-standing relationships between the public and not-for-profit sector, which she does with ease (and in six-inch stilettos, nonetheless!) Since the inception of her namesake full-service agency in 2002, NK’s lent her skills and strategy to the development and execution of initiatives for brands such as Ford Models and Kiehls, and in doing so, has situated herself as the go-to agency in T.O. Koifman is a real do-gooder, using her knowledge to combine two of her passions: “Shining a spotlight on stories of substance and supporting causes that are making a difference around the world.” And we think the world would be a lot more glam if there were more Natasha Koifman’s in it.
