Tamara Mellon, OBE


The Queen’s birthday honours list acknowledges outstanding efforts in the fashion industry.

Tamara Mellon, founder and chief creative officer of Jimmy Choo shoes, has been made OBE (Officer of the British Empire) in recognition of her contributions to the fashion industry — one of several individuals from a range of backgrounds singled out in the British Queen’s birthday honours list.

In a statement, Mellon expressed her delight at the accolade: “I am so thrilled to be receiving this great honour and to be recognized in this way. 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 honour.”
