Coffee Table Book Collection

I admire Tamara Mellon, awe-inspiring founder of the Jimmy Choo empire, for many reasons.  For one, she is iconic to the fashion industry.  She lives in a gorgeously designed Manhattan apartment decorated by the infamous "Million Dollar Decorator" Martyn Lawrence Bullard.  But most of all, she has got a to-die for shoe closet fully stocked with thousands of pairs of Jimmy Choo shoes as seen here.

Since I don't have the means yet to launch a multi-million dollar empire, or build an arsenal shoe collection (5 and counting), she's inspired me to start small and build a collection of coffee table books full of fashion and designers as pictured below.

As a foundation to my collection, for Christmas this year I have asked Santa for the following books.  All are designers that I LOVE.
