Fashion News | Tamara Mellon to sell Jimmy Choo
Savvy businesswoman Tamara Mellon looks set to net a cool £100 million with the rumoured sale of her profitable Jimmy Choo label.
The CEO, whose shoe empire is popular with fashionistas and celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker, Nicole Kidman and Gwyneth Paltrow, is said to be putting the £500 million company up for sale.
Mellon, who was recently awarded an OBE, is the driving force behind the success of the luxury label, having recently established a popular handbag range and a collaboration with Hunter boots to create wellies that attracted £1 million advance orders despite the hefty £235 price tag.
Wherever Ms Mellon heads to next, be it another fashion house, Hollywood, or full-time mummyhood (she has a 7-year-old daughter Araminta), we're certain her next move will be as stylish as it will be successful.
