Inspired by finding creative escapism in sketching, the Choo Sketch collection brings to life five winning sketches of fantasy shoes, designed by our Jimmy Choo community in June 2020 and handpicked by Creative Director Sandra Choi to be realised in a capsule collection.
Bringing people together in an exploration of creativity, Sandra invited our global community to dream and join her in sketching fantasy shoe designs during lockdown last summer. With over 10,000 sketches submitted, Sandra selected 10 finalists, with the five winners voted for by the Jimmy Choo Instagram community. The winning sketches are unique in design but united in symbolising creativity, optimism and hope.
The Choo Sketch collection is available exclusively online, with 100% of profits from full price sales donated to The Jimmy Choo Foundation’s partner Women for Women International, a charity that helps women survivors of war rebuild their lives.
