A glamorous fashion designer posted a gushing birthday message to her friend just weeks before discovering she was having an affair with her husband.

Sydney’s high profile fund manager Charlie Aitken split two weeks ago from his wife Ellie Aitken, who has been married for over 20 years. The couple has two daughters together, ages 4 and 2.

Mr Aitken has since confirmed that he is in a relationship with her boyfriend Hollie Nasser. Ms. Nasser is the wife of Mr. Aitken’s investment partner, Chris Nasser.

The affair has had a major impact on the company, Aitken Investment Management, with Mr. Nasser resigning from his position as director of the board of directors and Ms. Aitken stepping down as executive director.

The Aitkens founded the company with the support of Mr. Nasser.

“I can confirm that I am divorced from Ellie Aitken and in a relationship with Hollie Nasser,” Mr Aitken told the Daily Telegram.

“My only focus is my children and I won’t comment further.”

Mr. Nasser, a wealthy tax collector, has separated from his wife but kept tight-lipped about the split.

“While the affair had a major impact on me and my children, it is a private matter and I do not want to go into detail.”

The affair has shocked many as both couples had been friends for years.

Weeks before the split was confirmed, Ms Aitken, a lawyer turned fashion designer, shared a post on Instagram where she gushed about her good friend Hollie and shared multiple photos of the two together.

“Congratulations on my beautiful (Hollie). I am so lucky to have you in my life. On to many more fun moments together in the coming years.’

Mr Aitken has since left the family and now lives with Mrs Nasser in a serviced flat in Bondi Junction.

Ms. Aitken is a former corporate mergers and acquisitions attorney at Clayton Utz and a former director of the NSW Polo Association.

However, in 2011, she moved from the legal sphere to luxury lifestyle fashion with the launch of her label Aitken And Co.
