Born and raised in Bahrain, Reem graduated from New York's Fashion Institute of Technology (FITNYC), which is the school of top designers like Carolina Herrera, Calvin Klein and Michael Kors. She was fortunate to intern under designers like Norisol Ferrari and Houghton, as well as attend numerous New York Fashion Week shows, such as Anna Sui's. After completing her studies in New York, Reem returned to Bahrain and started her own label Reem BuQais-Rivera.
Reem BuQais-Rivera is a bespoke womenswear label with a fusion of Latin & Middle Eastern influences, as Reem comes from an Arab-Latin background. Our collections define a woman that embraces her natural elegance, and expresses her individuality with confidence.
