KUALA LUMPUR: Shoe designer Datuk Jimmy Choo (pic) wanted to put his best foot forward when meeting Prince William and Catherine Middleton.
So, when he met them at the royal tea party here, he wore a whole new set of clothes – from his suit, shoes and even his underwear!
“Wearing a new set of clothes was just my way of showing respect to the royal couple.
“Just like how the Chinese wear new clothes for Chinese New Year, I came in a new attire as it can bring fresh energy and good feng shui,” he said during an interview at The Ritz-Carlton Residences here yesterday.
Choo, who is from Penang, wore a sleek black suit designed by Lord’s Tailor and paired it off with a silver tie during the tea party, hosted by British High Commissioner Simon Featherstone for the royal pair last Friday.
