Hello Darlings, Few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending the grand opening of Canada’s first stand alone Jimmy Choo boutique. Thankfully within the past few years American retail giants and sought after designers have made their way across border and have blessed us with a wider selection of fashion goodies. I will always be a supporter of Canadian retailers foremost however it is always wonderful to have more choices. After all, it is a woman’s nature to want to have more!
Founded in 1996 by couture shoe designer Jimmy Choo and Vogue accessories editor Tamara Mellon, the Jimmy Choo was favorite of Princess Diana. The design direction is overseen by Creative Director Sandra Choi, who’s the niece of Choo’s wife. Sandra’s vision is to create one of world’s most treasured luxury brands. The 198 square meter store, located in Yorkdale Shopping Centre reflects the new global store concept designed with the London-based David Collins Studio and is true to Choo aesthetic.
