The British businesswoman - who established her eponymous label in 2013 after selling her remaining shares in Choo in 2011 - plans to exit Chapter 11 in 60 days, WWD reports, and will form a new company that will own trademarks that currently belong to Tamara Mellon LLC.
"We will use this brief period of reorganisation so we can position ourselves to take advantage of our new growth strategy and ensure the long term vibrancy of our brand," Mellon said in a statement. "We expect that we will emerge from this stronger than ever in 60 days or less, and all of us at Tamara Mellon look forward to pursuing our passion long into the future."
The filing reported that the company holds assets of between $1 million and $10 million and has between 100 and 199 creditors who are owed between $1 million and $10 million. The reorganisation plan - which has yet to be approved by the court - means that Mellon can continue to trade during the 60 days without making any employees redundant.
