Having collected statement clothing since childhood and inspired by the retro boutiques of down-town Manhattan, Clemmie Myers started selling her one-off finds from her West London home. Customers were whisked down a yellow brick road, past a telephone box and in to a room full of treasure. Very quickly fashionistas, stylists and magazine editors followed suit. Celebrated for her eye for the unusual, Clemmie has been sourcing Gladrags for the glitterati ever since.
In 2013 Lime Green Bow got it’s own home – an appointment only showroom on All Saints Road!
Clemmie also holds a series of pop ups throughout the year. She recently shared a pop up with buymywardrobe in Portobello and we fell equally in love with her and her style...
What's your star sign?
Your favourite part of London & why?
Notting Hill it's so vibrant and there are so many quirky characters
Your motto in life?
Leap first look later
Why vintage fashion?
Because there is something theatrical and glamorous about dressing in well made beautifully tailored pieces from the past. It's also good for the environment and I was brought up to always respect my elders.
The best vintage piece you ever found?
It's always the one that got away that's why I always say to my clients if you love it get it because if you don't someone else will.
How did you come up with the name Lime Green Bow?
I wanted the name of my business to reflect ones individuality as all the pieces are handpicked by me and unique and one off so what better reflects individuality than a nickname - my nickname at uni was clembo which became Lembo then Limebo then Lime Green Bow. Sounds strange but then they always are!
When is your next pop up?
It's from Feb 1st to March 13th at 201, Portobello Road right next door to your good selves! I'm so excited to showcase my latest statement & designer vintage collection 'Starwoman' having just got back from NYC with an abundance of beauteous pieces.
If you could invite any 3 people to a dinner party (dead or alive) who would they be?
Right now? Donald Trump, Hilary Clinton and My dad as mediator
What do you love about Portobello Road?
I love the sense of community, the sense of urgency, the people the colours the history, the coffee (coffee plant)
A hidden talent?
I went to drama school so I'm a closet thespian
If you were on death row, what would your last meal request be?
Your favourite movie?
Fight Club is definitely one of my favourites and I've just started boxing so it's on my mind
