Luxury shoemaker Jimmy Choo has reported a 12% rise in net revenues to £299m.

The designer brand said new stores in China and growth in sales in Japan helped its annual growth.

There was a "strong performance" in both women's and men's shoe collections.

It is the first trading update Jimmy Choo has made since listing on the London Stock Exchange in October.

"We are delighted with this record net revenue performance, with a mix of like-for-like, retail and wholesale growth underlined by the success of our products," said Jimmy Choo chief executive Pierre Denis.

"Our focus on shoes and dedication to product quality has ensured we produced innovative products which resonate strongly with our clients around the world."
