As somebody who admittedly scrolls by means of TikTok for hours on finish, I will be the primary to say Remi’s movies, wherein she evaluations clothes and feedback on the match — usually copying the match fashions’ poses and exposing the dimensions discrepancies from totally different manufacturers — are pure gold.
Earlier than Remi took to TikTok, she labored at JAY-Z’s music streaming service Tidal as a partnership advertising coordinator, the place she helped launch and handle relationships and activations with companions round album releases, dwell streams, documentaries, and occasions. “Working at Tidal was superior,” Remi instructed CelebrityPie. “However being my very own boss and being answerable for my very own content material and selections is a recreation changer.”
So far as turning into a full-fledged TikTok influencer goes, it was a contented accident. Remi signed with Stetts Mannequin Administration, a boutique modeling company primarily based in NYC, and began making TikTok movies in her free time. All was quiet till she posted a video targeted at UK-based retailer PrettyLittleThing about how none of its garments match her, even in her measurement. It at present has 245K views (and counting).

And as certainly one of her largest followers, I can attest that it is easy to be there for Remi when she’s there for us each single day.
What makes Remi much more interesting is that her content material appeals to everybody, no matter intercourse, age, race, gender, or measurement. “I’ve mothers watching my movies who inform me they’re impressed in a method they by no means have been earlier than, and I’ve youthful women thanking me for lastly giving them the boldness they by no means had in relation to style,” she stated. “I additionally discover increasingly that it is not solely curvy ladies that watch my content material, however ladies of all sizes. You would be shocked how discouraged skinny ladies can really feel about purchasing as nicely. I need to be there for them, too.”
Manufacturers are additionally taking discover, and Remi can solely hope that they pay attention. “TikTok is a platform of actual individuals talking about how they really feel,” she stated. “Manufacturers must be listening and watching in the event that they need to hold their prospects.” As for her followers, Remi has a bit of recommendation: “By no means really feel discouraged by how clothes suits, what measurement you’re, or if manufacturers haven’t got your measurement out there.
