We stumbled across one of the brilliant founders layered up in the autumn trends, hopping into (or, at least, leaning against) a London cab, in her local haunt Belgravia, and decided to ask her some quick fire questions…

We learn all about the entrepreneurial PR pioneer that is Hermione Underwood and how her strategic planning and positive outlook brought Atelier Romy to life. From her favourite piece in the collection to secret spirituality, meet the awesome Aussie who puts a spring in Atelier Romy’s step. Enjoy! Rosie x

Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am an Aussie approaching 5 years in London. I love business and branding and currently run three company’s: Atelier Romy (with Sabine), The H Collective (consulting clients) and Hermione Olivia (my travel and fashion blog). 

How would you describe your style?
Relaxed, comfortable and occasionally trend driven.

Your 5 key wardrobe staples?
I live in denim, sneakers, blazers and love handbags and sunglasses. I feel naked without rings and earrings.

What does jewellery mean to you?
Every piece of jewellery I own tells a story and is precious to me. I tend to find favourites and wear them on repeat. I feel jewellery is deeply personal and reflects a moment in your life, your personality and usually, tells a story. 

If you could only wear one piece forever more, which would it be and why?
Something Atelier Romy because this process and journey has been so deeply meaningful to me. Sabine is more than a business partner, she is family. I feel so honoured to be building a brand that reflects us both and developing a business for our future. 

Which Atelier Romy piece is your favourite?
I never leave home without an Eternity ring, usually stacked and styled and always one on my index finger. I love our Emerald rings and the engraved Rockstar bangle. I cannot wait to be adorned in our new collections and to share them with the world. 

Quote you live by?
Anything you can conceive, you can achieve.

How will you be remembered?
As being full of life… I hope.

Tell us something about yourself we didn’t know?
I am deeply spiritual and practice daily. I’m a huge believer in manifestation and the law of attraction… if you haven’t already, try it! 

Last question …. You favourite metal? … and stone.
At the moment, I covet Rose Gold and diamonds. Basic and cliche but true!
