Sun is needed
Today, we decided to tell you a little more about Emma, the creator of
“Beau Tie”: a very British brand who creates amazing bow ties for all occasions.
She has recently been on an interview with us telling us about her brand, her secrets
and her inspirations.
Do you have a physical shop?I don't, but I do have a couple of stockists; Roullier White in London (a
lifestyle boutique), and HeyDay in Vienna (a wedding shop).
How would you describe your
brand?Classically British with a luxury feel.
How did you find the name of
your brand?I felt that I wanted to use the word 'Beau' because of its meaning, and for
the play on words Beau tie/bow tieWhy did you chose a half
French brand name although you create very British products?Although the word Beau is French, its meaning feels very relevant to my
brand. Beau: a fashionable young man.
How do you target your customers?Largely through social media.
I am a huge fan of Instagram because it's pretty much just based on visuals and
I feel that's a strong point for me. My work is very visual, especially certain
printed fabrics! I love to show 'in the making' and 'behind the scenes' shots.
I think it's also good to show the face behind the brand so customers can see
that I'm just an ordinary person, who happens to make bow ties for a living! It
makes it more relatable and builds a sense of trust.
Where do you find your
inspirations?I find inspiration everywhere. My Favourite part of my job is perusing
charity shops to spot vintage treasures which I can turn into a beautiful bow
tie. I love spending time in fabric shops too. I also found that talking to like-minded
fellow business owners at events and markets is always a great way to gain new
insights and ideas.
What do you prefer in British
fashion?There is so much I love about British fashion: The bravery to experiment and
be expressive, mixing vintage with high street, and also the minimal approach
too. This is all a strong inspiration for me and whenever I visit London I'm
constantly walking around with my eyes wide open to see the 'street styles'
around me.Do you think that your
creations reflect the British fashion?Most definitely, particularly in reference to vintage finds and creations;
the tweeds, the English rose florals and the Liberty print cottons.Do you think that everyone can
wear a bow?I think anyone can wear a bow tie, but it's a matter of confidence. If
you're comfortable wearing it, then it will always look fabulous!
Do you create bows and ties
for special occasions?Yes. I have made special requests for black tie events, birthday/Christmas/anniversary
gifts and proms. My biggest requests are custom orders for weddings, which have
become more and more frequent as I've built my business. It's wonderful to be a
part of someone's big day, and to see the photos starring my products too!
That's a big honour.Which bow represents your
brand the most?A vintage velvet one because it's classic, but luxury and can have a fun
If you are as enthusiastic by her bows that we are, do not hesitate to
see the rest of her beautiful collection on My Green Bag Website because after
all, anyone can wear a bow tie!MGBxx
