About Tamara Mellon
We’ve hit reset at Tamara Mellon. On our own business, and in turn, the women’s luxury shoe industry. Tamara Mellon, co-founder and former chief creative officer of Jimmy Choo, is no stranger to success or rule breaking. After a more traditional start of her eponymous label, Tamara decided it was time to do things differently—really differently. So she closed up shop and started over in Los Angeles, launching the first direct-to-consumer women’s luxury shoe brand: No retailers. Direct to women. Shoes designed for women, by women, and made by generations-old Italian factories.
We are dead serious about disrupting the fashion world and being taken seriously about doing it. Tamara Mellon is a Series B funded company, backed by NEA (the world’s largest venture fund; portfolio includes Moda Operandi, Jet, Casper, Goop, Groupon, and Quidsi, among others). We’re one year in, and we’re not slowing down. This is luxury, without the bullshit, in a fast-paced, startup setting.
