Following is an article which details how they got started in the first place …
“While working as accessories editor at Vogue magazine in the early 1990s, Ms Mellon met Mr Choo, who used to hand-make women’s shoes at the rate of 20 pairs a week.
She then founded Jimmy Choo in 1996 with a £150,000 loan from her father, Tommy Yeardye, who co-founded the
Vidal Sassoon hair products empire.
Since then Jimmy Choo – now a favourite among celebrities and Hollywood actresses, such as Julia Roberts, Renee Zellweger and pop star Beyoncé – has grown to become a global luxury fashion brand.
It has been a good investment for Ms Mellon. She has generated a multi-million pound fortune from the company after it was bought and sold by several venture capital firms and Ms Mellon is now considered one of Britain’s most successful female entrepreneurs.”
Credit to Tamara Mellon, Jimmy Choo and also Vidal Sassoon for not abusing their talents and gifts. They deserve to be successful entreprenuers for not giving up.
