The Jimmy Choo founder's personal and candid account of her life in the fashion business.

When Tamara Mellon's father lent her the money to start a high-end shoe company, he cautioned her: 'Don't let the accountants run your business.' Little did he know. Over the next fifteen years the struggle between 'the suits' and 'the creatives' would dominate, as Tamara Mellon's business savvy and design flair built Jimmy Choo into a premier name in the ultra-competitive fashion world.

Jimmy Choo's success came at a high price - including struggles with a conniving CEO, a turbulent marriage, a brutal takeover attempt, and a mother who tried to steal her hard-earned wealth.

Now, as she builds her next fashion venture, Tamara Mellon finally shares her whole larger-than-life story. In My Shoes is a must-read for fashion aficionados, aspiring entrepreneurs, and anyone who loves a juicy true story about sex, drugs, money, power, overcoming adversity... and high heels.
