Tamara Mellon To Launch Own Brand

Tamara Mellon Said Poised To Launch Own Label

<p>

>> Tamara Mellon, the founder and chief creative officer of Jimmy Choo who abruptly resigned from the brand over the weekend and will depart at the end of the month, is said to be prepping the launch of her own lifestyle brand, in the vein of Tom Ford and Tory Burch.

According to one of WWD's industry sources, funding is already in place for a Tamara Mellon brand, but a timeline for launch or details on positioning could not be learned. Mellon, whose net worth is estimated to be about $240 million, has declined request for interview since her resignation Sunday. However, according to WWD: "Another industry source said Mellon’s next step should come as no surprise: The source said her ambitions had always stretched beyond Choo, and that money — and a high profile — are important to her."
