Most Successful British Companies Founded by Immigrants: Jimmy Choo

Jimmy Choo

Jimmy Choo is an iconic British luxury accessories brand defined by an empowered sense of glamour. It was founded in 1996 by a Malaysian fashion designer Jimmy Choo.
After learning from his father about the craft of shoemaking, Choo made his way to England in the early 1980s. Choosing to remain in England, Choo opened his first shop in Hackney in 1986 in an old hospital building. It didn’t take long for Choo’s reputation to build. Within two years of opening his shop, Choo’s shoes were featured in an eight-page spread in Vogue magazine.
