Tamara Mellon Has A New Title At Jimmy Choo – 28/4/10

According to WWD, Mellon has been named Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Jimmy Choo, a change from her previous title as Founder and President of the luxury footwear label.

The company said Mellon’s role will remain the same, overseeing brand image, including product design, public relations and advertising campaigns.

Joshua Schulman, CEO at Jimmy Choo, said, “Today’s announcement acknowledges the important contribution that Tamara makes to our brand image and design process. The new title is a better reflection of Tamara’s many responsibilities and accomplishments at Jimmy Choo.”
