You may recognise Amber Atherton as a reality star on Made In Chelsea (don’t pretend you’re not a secret fan!), but did you know she’s also the girl behind too-cool jewellery label My Flash Trash? Already an insider favourite with London’s style set, Amber’s self-made brand offers cool ‘n’ quirky bling that’s more ’90s rave girl than West London socialite.
Wanting in on the action, we teamed up with Amber to create Topshop x My Flash Trash Girl, a jewellery line that’s as sassy as it is stylish! So if you like the sound of cheeky slogan charm bracelets and palm tree adorned rings, get down to the newly opened pop-up at Topshop Oxford Circus to shop. We caught up with the lady herself to hear more…
Can you sum up Topshop x My Flash Trash Girl in three words?
I can’t even!
What was the inspiration behind the line?
Definitely Spring Breakers and The O.C. Season 1. It’s like sweet Cali high school girl meets Miami chick adventure. That kind of fun summer road trip vibe with some secret diary drama.
Any favourite pieces?
I love all the black matte pieces. My best friend Piers has a cool finger tattoo and it inspired me to update the midi ring with a ’90s grunge vibe.
What will you be wearing the collection with?
What can we expect from the pop-up at Oxford Circus?
It’s like an internet meme playground set in California. Gold, black matte, dainty little playful things like mini skate boards, flamingos and whole lot of blah blah blah.
What advice would you give for setting up your own business?
Know your plan will change, be able to adapt to change, be prepared to get up no matter how many times you get knocked down. Persevere and know when to pivot. And finally enjoy it!!
What’s Topshop all about for you?
Topshop is the ultimate fashion fix, every trend under the sun. You know you can walk in and get something that’s going to stand out and look amazing. So Im really excited that our jewellery we be a part of that finishing touch, it definitely will start a conversation.
