Tamara Mellon Rumored To Launch Her Own Lifestyle Brand
The week opened with breaking news that Tamara Mellon would be leaving Jimmy Choo, the famed-footwear brand that counts her among it’s top reason for it’s success.
Cut to just one day later and the breaking news… or rumor… is that Ms. Mellon is leaving Choo to start her very own lifestyle brand and, according to WWD, the funding may already be in place.
The fashion tome reports that a source told the paper that one of the main reason’s behind Mellon’s departure and this latest speculated venture is her well-known ambition. Telling WWD that “money and a high profile are important to her,” the source said that it’s understandable that she would want to branch out on her own. Especially since, having sold her shares in Jimmy Choo upon it’s sale earlier this year, Mellon became a salaried employee – a tough step-down for someone used to being in charge.
If anyone can do it, Mellon, with her taste for all-things-luxury, can. I’m sure we’ll be seeing a launch sometime in the near future. Of course we here at PoshBeauty.com will keep you in the know!
