Tamara Mellon Exits Jimmy Choo

>> Tamara Mellon, who cofounded Jimmy Choo in 1996, has severed her ties with the brand. She recently served as chief creative officer, but no longer had any financial interest in Choo following its $800 million acquisition by private Italian luxury goods group Labelux in May.

According to Labelux, Mellon left “to pursue [an] independent career,” and the company has no plans to replace her as chief creative officer. “The creative side of the company is extremely strong and the design direction will continue,” said Reinhard Mieck, Labelux’s chief executive.
