The lovely Clemmie Myers is the über fashionable vintage clothing and accessories expert, running her fashion archive, Lime Green Bow, from All Saints Road in Notting Hill, whilst moonlighting as a freelance stylist. Fittingly, Clemmie chose to model our vintage navy Chanel; ‘The quality leather, along with the timeless-chic design has meant the vintage Chanel bags are as popular as ever‘.
What do you do?
I am the Director & Curator at Lime Green Bow Fashion Archive – I collect and sell Statement & Designer Clothing and Accessories from pre the Late 1990s. I am also a Stylist
What are you most proud of?
This year I am extremely proud to have launched my website www.limegreenbow.co.uk to run alongside my appointment only Showroom on All Saints Road. In life, I am most proud of bringing people together, being encouraging and hopefully being a good nurturer of peoples talents.
What can’t you live without?
Love, Laughter and Lychee Martinis
What is your most memorable fashion purchase?
A prototype Paco Rabanne Cutwork wrap skirt with a gold buckle that I actually recently sold. It was the only one of its kind and was used in a show in the 90s. When you come across a prototype it’s always a memorable experience.
What is your favourite shop of all time?
Steinberg and Tolkein – It was a vintage shop on the Kings Road, which sadly closed down a few years ago. There was always so much treasure and the shop assistants were always quirky and knowledgeable. I think most of my teenage presents from my brother came from there.
What is your biggest fashion mistake?
I don’t think there is such a thing. What you wear is largely reflective of your mood. Perhaps I may have been a little bold in what I have worn at times, but I don’t regret having bold moments, it’s simply experimentation and I am all for that.
Who would play you in the film of your life?
My friends would probably say Patsy from Ab Fab (Joanna Lumley), which is fine by me as I love her! It’s a little misleading as I am not really like her as a person (I don’t think?!) nor do I look like her (I wish!) But I am often told I have a quality that reminds people of the character. I suppose her love of fashion and dressing up might also have something to do with it.
