It looks like Jimmy Choo founder Tamara Mellon, who left the shoe company at the end of 2011, is getting back to work.

The Telegraph noticed Mellon, who has been rumored to be starting her own lifestyle brand pretty much since she left Choo, recently sent out some tweets that seem to suggest she's designing shoes again.

Mellon tweeted the picture at left with the caption: "Me and Francesco, the most amazing last shoe maker. Back in the factories!"

She tweeted another picture of herself getting her foot measured with the caption: "Measuring my foot. The last time I did this was 15 years ago!"

While Mellon has yet to make an official announcement, it looks like one could be imminent. Or, at the very least, Mellon is not trying to keep her new project completely under wraps--which makes sense since, according to the Telegraph, her non-compete agreement with Jimmy Choo ended in February. It was around that time, that Mellon was rumored to have been courting some big-name investors for her new venture, which is "expected to be eponymous" according to the paper.

Well, let's just say our interest is piqued.
