Former president and co-founder of footwear label Jimmy Choo, Tamara Mellon stepped down from trial in November 2011 after Labelux was adopted. In 2013, she launched her brand, which offers a line of evening gowns and footwear that doesn't follow the seasonal trend of other fashion brands. Mellon was born in London in 1967, but spent most of her childhood between Beverly Hills, Switzerland and London. His first exposure to fashion was when he established the Portobello market in Notting Hill. In 1990, she became an assistant editor at Vogue and met her former workmate Jobmy Choo in east London. Jimmy Choo's company was founded in 1996 by Mellon's nephew, Choo, and Choo's nephew, Sandra Choi, who became the creative director. Choo left the company in 2001, when it launched on the label brought by Equinox Luxury Holdings Ltd. In 2004, Lion Capital acquired a majority stake in the company, valued the product at $ 101 million. In 2007, PowerBrook Capital also took a majority share that raised the company's value to $ 185 million. In 2008, Jimmy Choo won the ACE Designer Brand of the Year, the BFC British Designer Brand of the Year Award, and the Fashion News Brand of the Year Award. In 2011, Mellon sold Jimmy Choo to the latest Labelux manufacturer for $ 525,5 million, putting in an estimated $ 85million from the sale. In November of that year, he stepped down from his position with almost $ 60 million. In 2013, Mellon launched its naming label in Los Angeles on the basis of its “Buy now, wear now” strategy.
