2003 - Alison Hampel and Sophie Threapleton (Coco Ribbon)
The 2003 Shell LiveWIRE Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award (London) was won by Alison Hampel and Sophie Threapleton and their business Coco Ribbon.
Founded in 2002 as the original girly boutique in London's Notting Hill, Coco Ribbon has evolved today into it's own lifestyle brand of Bohemian-Luxe fashion and chic gifts with heart.
Using opulent bespoke prints, luxury fabrics and feminine silhouettes our raison d'etre is to indulge and inspire you with the timeless and unique, bringing you gorgeous garments that will become treasured favourites.
Coco Ribbon also cut through the clutter to bring you covetable jewellery, accessories and gifts from around the world, lavishly presented in their iconic chocolate brown and turquoise packaging.
"It's basically like a home from home," explains Sophie, "we wanted to give an atmosphere of walking into your own house. What we're really creating is a brand, not just a boutique."
