DESIGNER icon Jimmy Choo will be guest of honour as a shoe boutique launches its new collection.

The shoe designer to the stars will visit Davina Shoe Boutique, in Chislehurst High Street, next Saturday, March 20, to help launch the spring and summer collection.

This is the second visit the star will make to the boutique after he helped open the store in 2008. It is owned by his niece, Michele Pritchard.

Ms Pritchard, 28, who trained in design with Choo, said: "At first my designs were inspired by Jimmy but now I have my own unique style and often cater for different customers.

"We wanted the boutique to become an all-round shopping experience rather than just shoes so Jimmy is helping us launch new lines of clothing and handbags."

The family-run business opened another store in nearby Bromley High Street in September last year.

Choo will arrive at the store from 12.30pm and will answer customer questions until 2.30pm.
