1. What does fashion mean to you?
Fashion, to me, is a way of expressing and exploring yourself. It’s a way of enjoying what is currently trending and how you can make it work for you. I have never been the kind of girl who kills herself over fashion. For me fashion, ultimately, needs to be comfortable, unique and make a statement.

2. What are your general professional and non-professional interests?
Professionally, my brand, REMA, makes accessories, jewelry, and clothes. I also have started, Conatural, with my sister Myra, which is a 100% skin and haircare products label. When I am not working, I enjoy traveling, yoga, and quality time with my friends and family.

3. What was the first item you ever designed?
The boxy logo studs. I still feel they are one of the most classic and versatile pieces I’ve made, and they have been one of my best-selling pieces.

4. How do your designs differ or stand out from the rest?
My designs have a signature style, which always winds down to being unique, super wearable, and make a statement but in a subtle manner. They are light and fresh, and can be worn in the day or night, and with Eastern or Western clothes, by both men and women. I pride myself on having a luxury brand that emphasizes on craftsmanship.

5. How would you define your city's style sense?
I’ve noticed that people are a lot more aware now, and more fashion forward. People are interested in unique buys, seeking some thing different with quality in mind. There are huge pockets of people who enjoy fashion in different ways from young students, house wives to professionals.

6. Who are some of your favorite designers?I am loving Del Pozo and Sophia Webster these days!

7. Where do you get your inspiration?From traveling and the world around me.

8. What's your favorite part about conceptualizing a design?Seeing the end result, and how it exceeds my expectations.

9. Do you prefer sketching designs or just directly constructing them?
Sketching is a very important part of designing, as it helps facilitate whether design can be produced or not. One must put their thoughts on paper before going ahead with production, as sometimes things don’t turn out the way you want them. It's is good to have a conceptual idea and see it transpire in to a physical product. I also love sketching – I find it very relaxing.
