SHOE designer Jimmy Choo has joined Curtin Uni­ver­sity as an ad­junct pro­fes­sor and global am­bas­sador. As an am­bas­sador, Pro­fes­sor Choo will utilise his in­ter­na­tional con­nec­tions to pro­vide col­lab­o­ra­tion and stu­dent mo­bil­ity op­por­tu­ni­ties with other fash­ion in­sti­tu­tions around the world. He said he hoped to in­spire the next gen­er­a­tion of fash­ion de­sign­ers. “Through­out my ca­reer I have al­ways re­spected my fa­ther, a shoe designer, and my teacher for giv­ing me a skill,’ he said. “I want to put my heart and knowl­edge back into so­ci­ety, back into school and the young peo­ple so they can learn some­thing. As a global am­bas­sador with Curtin Uni­ver­sity I can do this both in Perth and over­seas. “I thor­oughly en­joyed my time at Curtin work­ing with the stu­dents, not only shar­ing my knowl­edge, but learn­ing from them as well.”
