A collaboration between Jimmy Choo and Cartier, Four Inches is a book for women, about women and by women.
10% of the proceeds from this book will go to the Elton John AIDS Foundation who will make sure that it gets to women and girls in Africa who are infected with HIV/AIDS.
Launched in 1996 by Tamara Mellon, Jimmy Choo, the makers of glamorous shoes, handbags and accessories favoured by female stars and elegant women, now has over 20 stores worldwide. The idea for this book came from Tamara Mellon who wanted to be able to use her company to help ease the suffering of women and children in Africa.
Founded in 1847 by Louis-Francois Cartier, the famous French watchmakers and jewellers agreed to sponsor this project after being approached by Jimmy Choo. They also provided all the jewellery that appears in the book.
Established in 1992 by Elton John, the Foundation is primarily concerned with increasing awareness, providing funding for educational programs and eliminating prejudice against HIV/AIDS infected individuals. Their work is worldwide.
