Emirates Woman - - Front Row / In­ter­view -

Jimmy is good for me. If I ar­rive home feel­ing low, he cheers me up. He is a tire­less part­ner. He doesn’t care what car I drive, what I look like, if I’m rich or clever… it’s sim­ple, I gave him my heart and he gave me his. How many peo­ple can you say that about? It was my ex-wife’s idea to name him af­ter Jimmy Choo. She wasn’t keen on me get­ting a bull ter­rier, think­ing he’d be too big for the apart­ment – the deal was I could get him if she chose the name. She was a stylist and loved shoes. As for me, I love all forms of art but es­pe­cially il­lus­tra­tion as it al­lows for com­plete free­dom of ex­pres­sion. The

sketches are authen­tic with­out be­ing too se­ri­ous or con­sid­ered. Jimmy loves be­ing the cen­tre of at­ten­tion – some­times he’s rest­less but we’re a team and we un­der­stand ea­chother’s moods. See­ing him as the face of this col­lec­tion is to­tally sur­real – I’m so proud.
