For those of you interested in the rise of Tamara Mellon, former Chief Creative Officer for Jimmy Choo, here's a bit piece for you. We've just had the cover of Mellon's Memoirs land on our desk. Titled "In My Shoes," the book is set to be released on October 3rd, just as the fashion industry is wrapping up it's global tour for fashion weeks from New York to Paris.
Amazon has included the follow tidbit describing exactly what we'll find in the book:
In this candid memoir, Tamara Mellon shares her whole larger-than-life story, with candour and detail that has never before been made public. From her troubled childhood and her time as a young editor at Vogue to her partnership with cobbler Jimmy Choo and her very public relationships, she offers a gripping account of the episodes that have made her who she is today.
Mellon made a fortune building Jimmy Choo into a billion-dollar fashion brand. She became the prime minister's trade envoy and was honoured by the Queen with the Order of the British Empire, yet it's her personal glamour that keeps her an object of global media fascination. Vogue photographed her wedding; Vanity Fair covered her divorce and the criminal trial that followed. Harper's Bazaar toured her London town house and her New York mansion, right down to the closets...
Sounds scandalous, yet fashionable. Also sounds like there's a potential movie script in the making here.
So let's cut to the chase... will you be buying it?
