Footwear label Jimmy Choo's top designer has fallen out with the business's boss, according to industry reports.

Sources cited in the Daily Mail said designer Sandra Choi was at odds over her pay with Tamara Mellon along with co-chief executive Robert Benoussan, threatening the company's contract with her.

It has been suggested that Choi provides the brand's momentum but is disgruntled with what she says is a lack of appreciation.
