Tamara Mellon is looking to sell the shoe brand loved by celebrities
Tamara Mellon is looking at selling the shoe company for £500 million. The businesswoman owns a fifth of the brand and the sale could net her a whopping £100 million.
Jimmy Choo is an iconic brand loved by the stars, including Sarah Jessica Parker and Julia Roberts.
Mellon discovered Malaysian shoe designer Jimmy Choo in the 90s where he was working from his workshop in Hackney, East London.
Mellon, then at Vogue, invested in the cobbler's company and took the brand to new heights, turning it into one of the most loved shoe companies by celebrities and members of the public alike.
