Tamara Mellon is an English businesswoman with a net worth of $180 million. Tamara Mellon gained her net worth by being the co-founder of the luxury brand Jimmy Choo. Mellon was born in London to a entrepreneur and model. Mellon began her career as a pubic relations person before approaching shoe-maker Jimmy Choo to make high-end, fashionable shoes.
Tamara Mellon, OBE is the former Chief Creative Office and co-founder of Jimmy Choo, a luxury brand that offers designer shoes, handbags and a range of accessories . She stepped down from the brand in November 2011.
Mellon was born in London, on 7 July 1967, the daughter of Tom Yeardye, a successful entrepreneur and Ann (Davis) Yeardye, a former Chanel model. She was educated in Berkshire at Heathfield St Mary's School, in Beverly Hills and in Switzerland.
Mellon began her career at Phyllis Walters Public Relations, Mirabella, and followed as accessories editor for British Vogue in 1990.
