"A Global Movement of Positive Energy!"
For the past three decades it has been Remy’s passion to create timeless images for celebrities and other high profile gentlemen through fashion. Working for top designers such as Valentino, Remy became a personal bespoke fashion consultant to a variety of professional athletes and media celebrities. He cultivated his sartorial skills by working behind the scenes and as a model on the runways of Paris, London, New York and Japan. His styling and artistry is sought out by various publications including UMEN in the Middle East for which he wrote a monthly fashion advice column. He has been a guest on multiple TV shows.
Remy’s quest for uncompromising quality is sought by his many clients and his book, Legends of Style, is the ultimate fashion reference for the sartorial gentleman. Now any man, of any body type, can learn to dress in a timeless style to enhance his image and confidence with Legends of Style. VERTIKAL Life caught up with Remy for an inspirational interview with Fashion Contributor Mikael Williams.
Toh: Originally I was born in Africa but raised in Paris. My family moved to Paris when I was 6. I left Paris in 1981 and was homeless in Harlem for a year. I was saved by a woman that I didn't know. I didn't speak English. I didn't even know what good morning meant. She helped with that (learn English) and to this day I have no idea who she is or where she is. She vanished.
Now that our year-in-review extravaganza has been published, and we have all digested the events and individuals that shaped our world and wardrobes in 2015, it is time to look forward. And even though it's not yet January, I already have one prediction: Come February women's wear, the Force is going to be felt in fashion.
