The bi-continental and glamorous Tamara Mellon became a household name as the co-founder of Jimmy Choo.
Not many realize this, but Tamara Mellon broke away from the Jimmy Choo brand two years ago, and is now launching her own couture fashion line with her name leading the way this time around, this fall. Boots, bags, coats, shoes, and everything spanning a complete wardrobe from top to bottom abounds in her namesake brand. As she triumphs at the top of the fashion industry, you wouldn't think that her life leading up to this climax was actually pitted with turbulence, trials, and dusted over with a little luck and knowing when to engage in a good deal when she saw one. This mogul didn't only mastermind the designs of the Jimmy Choo shoe collections, she had the business sense to build a multi-million dollar brand around the globe, while stepping into the chic glamour that the delicate high heels the rich and famous displayed when they wore them. Tamara Mellon lived the brand; and what a better brand to go out and about in, while working to catapult the name Jimmy Choo into not just a fashion statement, but an emblem of the desirable lifestyle, synonymous with poise and power. As Tamara relates the details of both her business and personal life, you watch her pull herself up by her stiletto, knee-high bootstraps time and time again. In some ways, since her success was not easy and automatic, these setbacks ignited a fire inside of her that gave her the drive to achieve more, and become the best at what she does. Rather than accepting the difficulties that came her way, they inspired her to surpass what she had already done with her life so far. Receiving the honor of the Order of the British Empire (OBE), bestowed upon her by the Queen of England herself, in 2010, was a magnificent achievement, and yet Tamara continues to aspire to exceed expectations when most would already view her at the top. Tamara Mellon has a true passion for shoes, accessories and fashion. Tamara now places her passion for fashion ahead of the rest with the launch of her new line of shoes, accessories, and clothing while maintaining her fabulous over forty youthful flair as the founder and creative director of TamaraMellon.com. As Tamara Mellon continues her book tour and fashion line launch in London and flies over the Atlantic to New York City, she and TheLadyinRed have crossed proverbial paths by sharing a commonality, a love of shoes (and Choos!). In anticipation that there are many TheLadyinRedBlog.com shoe lovers out there, Tamara's team is giving away five hard copies of her new book to readers, which will be loved cover to cover. In My Shoes spoke to me, professionally and personally, and I think everyone can take away some pieces of it as lessons learned, whether it's not acquiescing to demands in order to escape confrontation as Tamara found herself doing in her early years in business, or making sure to take time out for those you love most, as she does with her daughter, Minty.

Retail environment is in crisis and department stores are in freefall, says Tamara Mellon - Retail Times

Retail environment is in crisis and department stores are in freefall, says Tamara Mellon
Tamara Mellon, co-founder and chief creative officer for the Tamara Mellon Brand, said that, "nobody will build the next billion dollar business how I built Jimmy Choo". Speaking at the annual Fortune Most Powerful Women International Summit in London, she explainedthat the way you used to build business was through wholesaler retail and "that will never happen again with the retail environment in crisis, department stores are in freefall and everybody's shopping online." Her company Tamara Mellon brand, is a completely different business model to her previous ventures - it's a direct to consumer, digitally led e-commerce business. "The old thing of what I do is the way we make the shoes... that will never change... but the way we sell and distribute them has changed. We don't design collections, we design new things that are season appropriate and put them up every month," Mellon said. Mellon thinks that the industry was damaged when fashion shows were opened to customers, rather than just buyers and press. "It used to have this big reveal moment in magazines and the shop floor... the customer never waited," she said, adding: "This idea of the fashion show being open to the public is very dangerous because we still as an industry take six months to deliver the product to the stores." She had firsthand experience of the problem of working with traditional wholesalers in the current retail climate with her Buy Now Where Now business she launched in 2013. After filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, she had to move to using online. She said: "A lot of executives in that channel did not want to acknowledge the digital revolution was coming. They were not set up to sell anything in that way. I pulled all my business from wholesale and pivoted the business and took it direct to consumer." During the conversation on stage with Patti Sellers, executive director, Fortune MPW Summits and Live Content, Mellon admitted that the fear that drove her at the start of her career is still there, in part: "I think I still have something to prove.
