Meet Hermione Elma of Hermione’s Couture in Boynton Beach

Today we’d like to introduce you to Hermione Elma.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Hermione. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I grew up in a creative family, I learned early on what she could do with just a pair of scissors and a piece of fabric. In fact, several of my family members were reputable tailors in the town where she grew up, including my mother. As a child, I spent most of her time at her uncle’s studio, picking up fabric scraps and turning them into dresses for me and my dolls. My interest in fashion design continued through high school when I first came to the US. I took many art courses and participated in many fashion shows. After High school I decided to pursue a career in Nursing. Although I always wanted to become a fashion designer, I continuing to pursue my interest in fashion in my spare time. I altered and designed clothes for myself, including her own scrubs for work. I also made clothes for my friends and family members.

After several years in healthcare, I decided it was time to follow my dreams and pursue a degree in Fashion Design. In 2012, I began designing clothes in the comfort of my home in Palm Beach, Florida. My business was an overnight success. Just a few months later, I opened my online store named “Hermione’s Couture”. As my business continued to grow, I eventually began renting a small space, which serves as my studio. Today, I continues to design beautiful and classic piece that are love by everyone.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Not at all, every business struggle at some points. For me it was the facts that most people didn’t believe in me at first. They were telling me that I could be doing something better than designing cloth for people. This was very challenging.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Hermione’s Couture – what should we know?
My Business is an awesome brand that in specializes in unique and affordable custom garment design. And I also offers my own private collection. We can create almost everything. From Casual and to formal clothing attire. I also create wedding attire from wedding dress, suit and bridesmaid dresses.

I proud of the company that I create from ground up. All the success and the ability to create so many beautiful pieces. I am truly bless.

The abilities I have to duplicate a half million dollars gown and have it look the exact same way as the famous designer set me apart from the rest. I can also create a beautiful purse/clutch or a nice hat to match any outfit if needed.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
First of all, I’ll say attitude and patient, then persistency, self-confident and discipline.
