Jimmy Choo founder and chief creative officer Tamara Mellon has been named an Officer of the British Empire as part of the Queen of England’s birthday honors list.
Mellon was recognized for her contributions to the fashion industry, along with fellow honorees, including Welsh actress Catherine Zeta-Jones.
“I am so thrilled to be receiving this great honor and to be recognized in this way,” said Mellon in a statement. “I am grateful to everyone at Jimmy Choo — and our customers around the globe — for helping make our success possible. While our brand has global reach, the roots and heritage of Jimmy Choo are uniquely British, so I am especially pleased and proud of this honor.”
