Fashion Designers of all time
Fashion designer Jimmy Choo was born in Penang, Malaysia in 1961. He used the craftsmanship he learned from his father, also a cobbler, to create some of the most coveted shoes in the world. Choo opened his first shop in Hackney in 1986 in an old hospital building. Within two years of opening his shop, Choos shoes were featured in an eightpage spread in Vogue magazine. Soon, Choo became the darling of the celebrity world, in particular Princess Diana, who donned Choos footwear seemingly everywhere she went. Jimmy Choo rose to fame for the quality and style of his handmade womens shoes.
