To me, success is seeing my customers genuinely happy with their clothes.

If I wasn’t into fashion, I would have been an event planner.
What advice would you want to give to new entrepreneurs?
My advice to new entrepreneurs would be to stay focused on ur dreams, remember why u started. Don’t get carried away by the buzz of social media

I hope to diversify in the coming years
Do you think your brand is lucrative enough for investors? If yes why?
Rhemieroses is lucrative enough for investors because we are on a mission to not only dress people comfortably but also to empower stay at home moms who will like to earn some money from home by reselling our pieces.
