Jimmy Choo was founded in 1996 by the Malaysian born London designer of the same name along with Tamara Mellon (previous editor of British Vogue). Ascent to stardom was immediate: Jimmy Choo became a fashion icon and his footwear, loved and adored by stars and celebrities, became something of a global phenomenon. For women styles are perfect for red-carpet dressing, with a range of richly colored and embellished shoes and clutches, while for men, shoes and leather accessories are elegantly wearable.
