Jimmy Choo thinks shoes can change a woman's personality.

The famous designer - whose creations are sought after by women across the globe - adores his work and believes footwear plays such an important role in people's lives that he relishes the chance to improve their lifestyle.'

He said: "We all wear shoes, every day - we have to. So they are a very important part of your wardrobe. They say something about the way you hold your body. Shoes must be elegant, comfortable. They affect the person's personality."

The 40-year-old craftsman - who was born in Malaysia - has been designing shoes since he was just 11, but admits he still has battles with himself while trying to perfect his styles.

He added: "I'm a perfectionist. I get angry and I lose my tempter, but only over shoes. My temper is very quick but there's never anything personal. If I lose my tempter with a member of staff, afterwards we'll go for a drink.
Maybe I just love my shoes too much!"

Jimmy recently revealed how it is never too late for people to start wearing heels, but can't start off with skyscrapers.

He said: "You should start with two or two and a half inches, get used to that first. But a lot of men, when they've been married for ten years, they walk in front of their wives.

"When a woman is wearing heels they have to walk more slowly, but sometimes their husbands won't wait for them."
