AS SHEEN ON... AMBER ATHERTON

Made In Chelsea's Amber Atheron gives us her advice on starting the day, starting her business and conversation-starting bling |

VIEW THUMBNAILS

Entrepreneur, jewellery designer and girl-about-town, Amber Atherton started her own business at the age of sixteen. Now just 22, she is taking the jewellery industry by storm with her online store MyFlashTrash.com. Sheen caught up with her at London Fashion Week to find out what makes her tick...

I'd describe my style as… Preppy Kaleidoscope.

 I'd love to pinch the wardrobe of… Anna Della Russo, the editor at large of Vogue Japan. She is not shy to dress up and I believe in that too. It's good to be outlandish and it's good to wear beautiful designs.

I define 'everyday elegance' as…  anything lace, a good tailored jacket, silk blouses, A-line wool skirts, quite prim overall, but with some interesting accessories - unusual jewellery, a statement handbag, a quirky ring...all the jewellery I wear is to start conversations. You stand out far away in a great outfit, but it's the accessories like a great watch that reveals your personality.

My favourite time of day is… the morning because it's the start of a new day, new opportunities, new challenges to be taken, goals to win.

The criteria for jewellery featured on my website MyFlashTrash.com...  must be beautiful, made with thought and to also be thought-provoking.

 If there was 25 hours in the day, I would spend my extra 60 minutes…  reading. Ideally, sitting under a tree on Hampstead Heath, perhaps Spent by Geoffrey Miller or a great thriller.

If I've got just five minutes to get ready the three items I grab are… Nars Laguna Bronzer, eyelash curlers, Bourjois Mascara and that's it, plus Tabac, my favourite perfume by Coqui Coqui.

 

Amber wears Lace Dress by Juicy Couture, jacket by Kenzo, shoes by All Saints, MCM bag, Sheen watch from H.Samuel and all jewellery from myflashtrash.com.
