Tamara Mellon - Tamara Mellon's Vast Shoe Collection

Tamara Mellon's daughter won't inherit her vast shoe collection.

The founder and chief creative officer of Jimmy Choo has "thousands" of pairs of shoes but says nine-year-old Minty probably won't be able to wear any of them because her feet will be too big.

She told Britain's Grazia magazine: "I really don't know how many pairs I have now - it is probably in the thousands.

"Minty's feet are already only one size smaller than mine - at age nine. She's never going to be able to fit into all my shoes."

Tamara - who raises Minty as a single mother - also revealed how proud she is of what she has achieved with her life and career.

She said: "I wanted my freedom and independence - they were the real driving forces for me. I never wanted to rely on a husband or a father for money."

She is also still learning to get the right balance between working and being a mother, saying: "But it is still a very difficult juggling act. I am trying to get a bit more balance now, and travel a little less."
