LONDON — Of all the challenges facing Jimmy Choo, the biggest is probably this: feeding a voracious clientele, even with some major economies struggling.
This week, the company opened a second Paris store, on the Rue Saint-Honoré and, at 1,600 square feet, the shop is even bigger than the first, on Avenue Montaigne. Across the Channel, Middle Eastern clientele at Choo’s London stores rose 146 percent during the month of August, and in the U.S., the brand is the top-selling women’s designer footwear label at Nordstrom with consistent year-on-year increases.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
