In My Shoes
A juicy true story about sex, drugs, money, power, high heels, and overcoming adversity.
Tamara Mellon used her business savvy, creative eye, and flair for design to build Jimmy Choo into a premier name in global fashion. But despite her eventual fame and fortune, Mellon didn't have an easy road to success. Her seemingly glamorous beginnings were marked by a tumultuous family life, battles with anxiety and depression, and a stint in rehab. Now Mellon shares the whole larger-thanlife story?from her time as a young editor at Vogue to her partnership with cobbler Jimmy Choo to her very public relationships.
In creating the shoes that became a fixture on Sex and the City and red carpets around the world, Mellon relied on her own impeccable sense of what her customers wanted. What she didn't know at the time was that success would come at a high price: struggles with an obstinate business partner, a conniving first CEO, a turbulent marriage, and a mother who tried to steal her hard-earned wealth.
