Its first store was opened on London's Bond Street in 1963 and it has gone on to open numerous standalone stores and concessions across the UK, the Middle East, Russia and the US. The store continues to keep its design headquarters in London.
The flagship brand, Kurt Geiger of London, releases two seasonal collections each year, with prices starting at aroundÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ£195 for a pair of women's court shoes. The firm also offers more the affordable diffusion lines KG Kurt Geiger and Miss KG, which offer mid-range pricing and a variety of shoe styles. In 1978, Kurt Geiger acquired the Carvela footwear brand, which specialises in glamorous occasion and party-wear shoes, renaming it Carvela Kurt Geiger.
