Irish headband brand Little Bow Pip has just received a HUGE boost from Kim Kardashian.
The reality star shared a cute snap of her daughter Chicago and her sister Khloe’s baby girl True enjoying some tummy time together – and it turns out the famous cousins were wearing Irish.
Little Bow Pip is owned by Dublin mum Nikki Whelan, who started the business after making her own little bows for her daughter Pippa.
Taking to Instagram, Nikki revealed that a few weeks ago, she sent bows for Kardashian/Jenner kids North, Penelope, Dream, True, Chicago, and Stormi.
And luckily for Nikki, the special delivery paid off as Kim, who boasts over 115 million followers on Instagram, posted a photo of True wearing a Little Bow Pip creation.
Speaking to Goss.ie about getting her bows into the hands of the Kardashians, Nikki said, “We worked our asses off,” before adding that her husband made contact with “the right person”.
The mum-of-two also teased that this is “not the last you’ll see”.
Great chatting with the lovely Anna @the_annalog from @herdotie for their series #MakeAFuss which helps celebrate and promote Irish women in business! I still have to pinch myself regularly to believe how far we’ve come with the little business idea that started on our kitchen table 3 years ago. Absolutely none of this would be possible without hard work, family support and my AMAZING team of girls that go above and beyond to make it all possible! But….. this is only the start and we have some huge projects in the works! *Link to article in bio #MakeAFuss #littlebowpip #womeninbusiness #womensupportingwomen #girlboss #teamwork #family #herdotie #irish #handmade #madeinireland
Many will recognise Nikki from Irish influencer Terrie McEvoy’s social media posts, as she’s the sister of Terrie’s fiancé David Fitzpatrick.
In fact, Nikki was there to pick up Terrie’s award for Best Blogger at The Gossies 2018 earlier this year – as Terrie was away in Australia at the time.

The Kardashian endorsement is an amazing boost for Nikki and her family, as they sadly lost their mum Tina to cancer earlier this year.
