In My Shoes: a memoir by Tamara Mellon [Rochelle, Howick Library]
I have to give Tamara Mellon’s book In my shoes 5 out of 5 in the rating scale.
I have never read such a fascinating story that is written in such a way that is fun and easy to read. In my shoes chronicles her roller-coaster life – from dealing with a difficult childhood, struggling with addiction to finally becoming the savvy and hugely successful businesswoman she is today.
The book offers a fascinating insight into her time running Jimmy Choo, turning the little-known name brand into a very popular household name. Admittedly she was not the name behind Jimmy Choo but her's was the face that you can say “launched a thousand Jimmy Choo shoes”.
This book is highly recommended. It is a fascinating read and I guarantee you will not be able to put it down.
